Activities during the week include the opportunity for all staff to sign a THANK YOU card to the nursing staff, an all-staff luncheon, a prize drawing and more!
In a memo to all staff CEO and President Dan McKee noted,
“Your dedication to our residents is a hallmark of our organization. Your teamwork is reflected in our five-star rating and high levels of resident satisfaction on both campuses. As caregivers and front-line staff, you form the foundation of our communities.”
National Nurses Week honors nurses everywhere. Promoted by the American Nurses Association, it encourages organizations to celebrate the dedication and outstanding contributions nurses make to healthcare every day. The 2023 Nurses Week theme is “You Make a Difference.” ANA is using this theme to honor the professionals in the nursing field and commend the widespread impact they have. National Nurses Week is celebrated through Friday, May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, distinguished as the founder of modern nursing.
