National Nurses Week is May 6th - 12th and the theme this year is “Nurses: Inspire, Innovate, Influence.” National Nurses Week ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s Birthday (1820-1910). She was the founder of modern nursing. She served as a manager of nurses during the Crimean War and was known as the "Lady with the Lamp" while making rounds to wounded soldiers at night. We want to celebrate nurses this week with the following list of freebies and discounts:
As the stores begin to fill with holiday gift merchandise, and Black Friday and Cyber Monday marketing fills the media, it is a good time to step back and revisit the priorities in our lives. As a healthcare technology service support company, Nobl helps the end-user, frontline providers of care every day. We understand the value they bring to each patient, the sacrifices they make to continue in a profession that while gratifying can also be exhausting, and the critical link they provide to keep America healthy.
Sometimes we get caught up in the rigors of life, the stresses at work and the never-ending to-do list. But with the recent tragic events caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, we are reminded what is important – family, friends, health, and happiness. As a healthcare technology company supporting the everyday workflow and documentation of nurses and nursing leaders across the country, we have many friends and colleagues in the hurricane’s path and we wish them “Godspeed” and safety to start the journey back.
As a busy baby-boomer with two jobs and an elderly mother, who enjoys time with my husband and adult children, I have purposely avoided getting started watching YouTube, TED Talks, and other social media pursuits because I know that they can become a time drain. The information explosion is addictive! One of the plenary speakers at the 2017 AONE Annual Meeting was Mick Eberling, the founder of Not Impossible Labs.
All we can say about AONE 2016 is ‘WOW’! The energy and excitement that emanated from nurse leaders during the conference refueled our motivation to advance healthcare innovation. This year, we spoke with hundreds of nurse leaders about their current rounding processes and initiatives. Thanks to these conversations, we’ve been able to identify key challenges nurse leaders consistently face within their organizations.
This National Nurses Week we celebrated by honoring nurses all across the country for their compassion and relentless commitment to care for those in need.
We continued our annual tradition of bringing cookies to all of our nurses, which prompted — as always — laughs, smiles, and even some high fives. Nurses deserve cookies everyday. We also had the opportunity to speak with nurses that use Hourly Rounding about why they got into nursing and what their most memorable moments have been since they began their careers.
