An Interview With Clint Child: Bridging the Cultural Divide Between Nursing and Laboratory Medicine

Clint Child

Nurses and laboratory professionals rely on each other to ensure accurate test results, but their relationships are sometimes challenging. As president of St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Nampa, Idaho, as well as a registered nurse with a doctorate degree in nursing practice, Clint Child often mediates when these two professional cultures collide. In this interview he explains why nursing practice is less predictable and requires greater flexibility than laboratory practice. He also shares his perspective on why it’s valuable for hospital leaders to have strong ties to their local communities.
