During National Nurses Month this week, the focus is on Recognition as we acknowledge the indispensable role of nurses in caring for patients, their communities, and the healthcare system as a whole.
It is essential to pay tribute to the exceptional work of nurses who demonstrate leadership, excellence, and innovation in both healthcare settings and community outreach programs. As they play a critical role in shaping the future of healthcare, it is important to honor their contributions. #ANANursesMonth

“As I reflect on my 40-year nursing career and the different roles, positions and settings I have had the privilege to work in, I could not have done it without my family’s support and flexibility. There were many times I had to miss a gathering or holiday, leave early, arrive late or totally reschedule a family event to accommodate my work schedule. After a challenging shift, they always seemed to give me the needed time to recharge and energize. Having a family that is understanding made it easier for sure throughout the years,” shared Lori Hintz, RN, CDP, CAADCT; Great Plains QIN Quality Improvement Advisor.
