Billy is recognized for his unique combination of academic and personal skills that facilitate his extraordinary, authentic leadership in nursing. His original, pioneering, planetary focus for a new era in global health and professional nursing is empowering and integrates theory, research and the healing arts. He practices, writes, and teaches in such a way that nurses return to their hospitals, clinics, and national/global projects to replicate and “walk the talk” of new knowledge and skills, and a deeper understanding of presence, compassion, and healing.
