national nurses month

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 manyLori Hintz 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.

Happy National Nurses Month to Our TEAM. Because of you, we live in a happier, healthier world….
