This week, please take a moment to reflect on the many accomplishments of our nurses as well as the diverse aspects of the nursing profession. The theme for this year’s National Nurses Week is Nurses: Advocating, Leading, Caring.
In addition to the excellent direct care provided, our Health System’s nursing community has influenced the profession by educating thousands of undergraduate and graduate nursing students, as well as orienting hundreds of nurses new to UMHS.
Our nurses have also influenced the world through more than 24 professional publications, 23 professional presentations and posters, 10 national leadership roles and editorial boards, and in receiving more than 22 professional awards and honors during this past year.
Time and time again, Nursing at Michigan continues our proud tradition of providing the finest patient care and influencing the world through our scholarly work.
This week, a number of events will be held for nurses and the U-M community including:
Blessing of the Hands services on Wednesday May 9 at 1:30 p.m.
In recognition of Nurses Week and in honor of the attentive, healing, meticulous, reliable, hard-working hands of the University of Michigan Health System, the Spiritual Care Department will be holding two Blessing of the Hands services – one in University Hospital Main Chapel 2A215 and the other in the C.S. Mott Children’s and Voigtlander Women’s Hospital Chapel 2780.
