You Make A Difference: National Nurses Month 2022

Nurses Make A Difference

Many talk about making a difference. Nurses actually do it. From the bedside to the boardroom, they are there: providing extraordinary care, advocating for patients and fighting for health equity. Join us this Nurses Month as we show our gratitude and celebrate the immeasurable ways nurses contribute to the health and wellness of our communities. 

Celebrate with us throughout the month of May!

We had so much fun hosting a virtual party last year for our students, alumni and faculty
that we’re bringing it back. Join us as we come together to celebrate how nurses make a difference. 

One for the Memory Books!

Chamberlain Community,

What an amazing Stronger Together Live Virtual Event we had May 26! It was so fun and meaningful and inspiring to be together.

If you weren’t able to join us – or if you want to re-watch the event or certain parts of it (cue Chamberlain’s talented virtual chorus!), you can do so here!

A Month-Long Celebration

We are devoting each week in May to support the unique and purposeful themes outlined by the ANA. Each week we will bring you fresh content and stories that underscore specific topics we believe are vital to nurses’ growth and self-actualization. 

"Week 1 - Self Care"
"Week 2 - Recognition"
"Week 3 - Professional Development"
"Week 4 - Community Engagement"

Follow us on social media!

Week 4: Community Engagement is at the Heart of Nursing

As nurses, you are hard-wired for solving problems, you felt a calling, and you are passionate about caring for and engaging with your community. Your extraordinary work improves every life that you touch – be it patient or team member. Nurses positively impact and nurture their communities by engaging with them as advocates, teachers, and even social media healthcare influencers. 

Although Nurses Month 2022 is coming to a close, we will continue to celebrate you every day – your compassion, brilliance, strength, endurance and drive.

Thank you for all you do!

Week 3: Professional Development 

For a nurse, professional development begins with the clinical knowledge and skills particular to the job. But as all future or current nurses soon realize, professional development also includes making yourself marketable, implementing useful tips, learning lessons on the fly, and giving or receiving help from other nurses. 

Week 2: Recognition

Your unwavering commitment to healthcare, patients and our communities should be celebrated and recognized in a meaningful way. See a few ways we celebrate Nursing awards and recognition.

Week 1:  Self Care

You put patients and their families’ needs front and center every day, which is critical for patient outcomes. But we believe your self-care needs to be a priority too.

We’ve created some fun ways you can share the celebration in your social channels, in your windows and during your next virtual get together.
