Year of the Nurse
Celebrating Sanford Nurses
Every day, nurses make an incredible difference in patient care. Their strength, expertise and willinginess to put other's needs first day in and day out, changes lives. We're proud to dedicate the next year as the Sanford Year of the Nurse.
The Year of the Nurse will be one of meaningful recognition, celebration, professional advancement, education and connection. It will be a year-long expression of gratitude for the humble heroes who serve as the heart and soul of our organization. We will recognize the contributions nurses bring to our patients, their families and our organization.
During the Year of the Nurse, Sanford will create an enterprise-wide nursing senate. Nurses from across our system will actively participate in communication, collaboration and shared decision making regarding our nursing practice and standards through our shared governance model.
During this year, Sanford will support its family of nurses through opportunities for continuing education with a focus on healthy work environments. We will advance professional development through several inspirational symposiums that bring in national nursing leaders. We will localize that education through expanded journal clubs, forums and a Sanford speakers series with your colleagues to keep you in touch with organization-wide innovations and topics relevant to you, your work and Sanford.
It's going to be an exciting year, with special surprises in store for you, as we focus on recognizing the invaluable contributions nurses make to the patients we serve.
Today we mark the beginning of the Year of the Nurse at Sanford Health
Join us for a year-long expression of gratitude for the humble heroes who serve as the heart and soul of our organization.
