May 6th begins National Nurses Week, which runs through May 12th. According to the American Nurses Association, “In 1993, the American Nurses Association declared May 6-12 as the national week to celebrate and elevate the nursing profession. National Nurses Week is a time for everyone – individuals, employers, other health care professionals, community leaders, and nurses – to recognize the vast contributions and positive impact of America’s 4 million registered nurses. Each year, the celebration ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.”
CleanSlate has approximately 78 Nurse Practitioners across the organization who treat our patients. Our Nurse Practitioners play a key role in CleanSlate’s care model and help deliver the quality care our patients have come to expect from us in order to help them achieve the lives they want and deserve.
We want to take this time to recognize how important each of you are not only to CleanSlate as an organization, but the impact you have on our patients’ lives. They entrust you everyday to put their needs first to ensure they are getting the proper treatment for them to be successful in their endeavor.
We hear stories week after week from our patients and members in the field about how our Nurse Practitioners go above and beyond for their patients as well as fellow employees. This team truly embodies our values and we are so fortunate to have every one of you as a Warrior in this fight with us.
Please join me in taking the time this week to show your appreciation to your fellow Warriors, our dedicated Nurse Practitioners. If you would like to recognize a team member by sending an e-card please visit the Warriors Excelling Recognition program portal today by following this link: https://cleanslatepro.engage2excel.com/.
