National Nursing Week (May 8-14, 2023)

Posted May 8, 2023, 12:31pm

The theme of National Nursing Week this year, Our Nurses – Our Future, emphasizes the importance of investing in nursing and recognizing the vital role nurses play in healthcare. This includes supporting nursing education and training programs, promoting diversity and inclusion in the nursing profession, and creating opportunities for nurses to advance their careers, and make a difference in their communities. Join us in thanking all levels of nurses in healthcare for their unwavering dedication where they continue to work short-staffed under stressful conditions while providing essential care and support to Islanders. Together, let’s show our appreciation and work with unions to ensure the employer supports their most valuable resources on the front- lines of the healthcare system.

Karen Jackson, UPSE President
