National CRNA Week was a huge success! From the inspirational stories shared across social media, to the U.S. House of Representatives’ bipartisan resolution acknowledging the vital role CRNAs play in the U.S. healthcare industry, thank you for your participation!
Let’s continue to take every opportunity to make our great profession known. In partnership with the American Nurses Association, The Washington Post invites you to nominate a CRNA from the Delaware, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., region for its “Star Nurses” recognition event. Nominations are due by midnight on February 22. It would be wonderful to get the name and accomplishments of a strong representative of the CRNA community into the general nursing community. Please consider someone who has served in your state or been a mentor for you.
Two winners will be selected from each state and announced at a live event on May 12, 2020—the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.
The World Health Organization has declared 2020 as the “Year of the Nurse.” The AANA is planning activities for the year, so stay tuned for announcements.
In the meantime, consider nominating a CRNA from the Delaware-Virginia-Washington, D.C. region. Information and selection criteria for the Star Nurses recognition event is available here.
Once again, thank you for the excellence you bring to our profession and to the patients you serve.
