As I began my second year as President of the District, we were full of excitement about celebrating the International Year of the Nurse & Midwife. Honoring the 200th Anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth and our annual Celebrate Nursing Banquet where we recognize selected registered nurses for their contributions to nursing.
Wow, how things have changed from January until mid March. We never could have imagined what registered nurses and all our healthcare partners would be facing with the onset of the COVID 19 Pandemic. RNs have truly shown how committed, compassionate, indispensable, skilled, and strong they are.
We realize how different it is in the midst of the Pandemic. However the Baton Rouge District Association Board wants more than ever to show our appreciation for the RNs throughout the District. We will be following the lead of ANA with different themes and events over the next 4 weeks.
Week 1 – Self Care Take time each day to be mindful of Self
Week 2 – Recognition Take time to recognize a RN who has inspired or mentored you
Week 3 – Professional Development Help another RN grow in their profession
Week 4 – Community Engagement Promote the diverse ways in which RNs contribute to our communities
We will use our Facebook page, announcements through Constant Contact and/or this website to share activities for each week. Please help us share this information with all of your RN colleagues.
As the President of the District and on behalf of the Board we Honor and Thank You! Happy Professional Nurse Month.
We know that we can continue to work together to make the future even better for our nursing profession, communities and State.
