These days – more than ever – nurses and nursing leaders are vital to health care and the future of caring in our community, region, and beyond. Our nation is facing the most profound shortage of nursing professionals in its history. A shortage of nearly half a million nurses, as well as a serious shortage of nurse educators threatens to disrupt healthcare in this country.
Please join us on May 7 to celebrate nursing and the future of caring.
