National Nurses Week, May 6 – 12, recognizes the contributions of nurses working to improve the wellbeing of patients throughout the nation. Supplemental Health Care, a leading provider of workforce solutions for health care facilities and professionals, puts 1500–1600 nurses to work daily and is proud to honor this celebration through its appreciation program, Nurses Rock.
This enterprise-wide initiative will pay respect to the passion, enthusiasm and dedication nurses demonstrate in health care organizations every day.
National Nurses Week has celebrated the nursing profession since 1988, and commemorates May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale – known as the founder of modern nursing. Health care institutions nationwide participate in this week-long observance to acknowledge how nurses influence the United States’ health care industry. To support National Nurses Week, Supplemental Health Care is celebrating its nursing workforce through local Nurses Rock-themed events, gifts and cards. This week is an opportunity for the company to recognize nurses’ efforts in supporting other medical professionals, providing quality patient care and maintaining productive health care environments.
“Our Nurses Week program is only one facet of Supplmental Health Care’s commitment to honoring the exemplary performance of our nursing employees,” said Janet Elkin, Chief Executive Officer and President, Supplemental Health Care. “We continually seek new and creative ways to extend our appreciation to our nurses for their outstanding contributions to our health care facility partners throughout the nation.”
In addition to Supplemental Health Care’s Nurses Rock celebration, the company diligently works to support and uplift its nurses with a variety of corporate programs. The company has developed unique initiatives such as the Helping Hands Referral Program, which allows nurses to receive compensation for every hour a referred recruit works for the company; and the Our Rewards Program, a project awarding nurses with points for every hour worked that can be redeemed for more than 3,500 merchandise options. Collectively, these efforts help Supplemental Health Care ensure its nurses receive the recognition and praise they deserve every day of the year.
