BJC Young Professionals Connection members learn pearls of wisdom from BJC vice president and chief nurse officer

Denise Murphy, RN, BJC patient care systems vice president and chief nurse officer, was a guest speaker at the BJC Young Professionals Connection virtual “Growing Your Career” event in October, where she shared wisdom and experiences from her 20-year career at BJC.

The BJC Young Professionals Connection group includes BJC team members in the early stages of their careers who, as future leaders, seek to network with peers and leaders, develop their careers and give back to the communities BJC serves. All team members, from all skill sets, are welcome – including those who consider themselves to be “young at heart” and more experienced professionals.

The group’s executive sponsor, BJC Home Care and community services president Dan Rothery, also connected with members during the event.

Murphy started the discussion by saying, “Don't worry about determining what you want to be forever. You'll likely have at least three major moves during your career, and possibly a total career shift.”

She then listed the various roles she has held over the years that eventually led her, like steppingstones, to her current position. As she took on new roles, she said she learned something very important.

“My experience has told me that you surround yourself with everyone and everything you need — and somehow you will get it done.”

She encouraged the attendees to build some depth of experience and to invest in relationships with co-workers.

“Experience is invaluable and the relationships you will make over time will take you anywhere you need to go,” she said.

Murphy, who will retire from BJC in June 2022, said she had postponed retirement at various ages and shared the following words of wisdom: “Don’t think about your life in terms of your age. Think about your life in terms of the energy you have to give to the world — all that you get and how much you can give back.”

She then summarized key takeaways from the first five years of her career with BJC. Learn more by watching that event segment.

As her final thoughts, Murphy re-emphasized the importance of surrounding oneself with the tools to succeed and focusing on the here and now, versus worrying about the future. She also encouraged attendees to volunteer for new things and to take some risks.

“Changes in the world, and especially in our lives, will impact our direction,” she said. “Look at the pandemic and the lives it has affected. So many people’s goals have been thwarted.

“Keep focusing on what you need to surround yourself with to help you succeed,” she said. “And find the help that you need — spiritually and humanly — to keep stepping forward.”
