Throughout National Nurses Week, May 6-12, we will recognize nurses for their commitment to their studies, profession and patients and for providing an extraordinary level of care to their communities.
“Nurses inspire, innovate and influence us every day,” reflected Susan Groenwald, PhD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, president of Chamberlain University. “How are they able to do this? We know it takes more than being a tender-hearted caregiver. It takes the determination, critical thinking, commitment to lifelong learning, resilience and grit. They are a special kind of strong – they’re #NurseStrong.”
This Nurses Week, we invite you to celebrate nurses at a special town hall where thought-provoking nursing and healthcare innovators will share inspiring ideas about the future of nursing and public health.
On Friday, May 11th, three industry-leading nursing and healthcare professionals will take the stage at a special Nurses Week town hall sponsored by Chamberlain University.
