Frontier Nursing University (FNU) is excited to celebrate National Nurses Week 2017! The celebration begins this Saturday, May 6, and will continue through Friday, May 12. The week is presented by the American Nurses Association (ANA) to recognize nurses working in the many fields of the health care profession. This year’s theme, “Nursing: the Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit,” is all about celebrating nurses who lead the charge for health and wellness.
As part of this week, FNU is kicking off a Bluegrass Wellness Challenge for all current employees and students. Participants will participate in a five-week wellness challenge that encourages everyone to get moving! Top performers will receive gift cards as incentives for participating in the challenge. FNU employees and students can watch their inbox for more details.
Additionally, there will be a variety of fun social media contests happening all week. Be sure to keep up to date with the FNU Facebook and Twitter pages to participate! Winners will receive prizes.
The ANA will also be offering a free webinar titled A Nurse’s Guide to Preventing Compassion Fatigue, Moral Distress, and Burnout, on Wednesday, May 10, from 1 – 2 p.m. EST. During this 60-minute exclusive live event, Joyce A. Batcheller, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN will discuss the latest research in the field and provide listeners with tools and strategies to infuse meaning, joy, and restoration into their practice and life.
