During National Nurses Week, which kicks off today, AHA and its American Organization of Nurse Executives subsidiary celebrate nurses for the invaluable role they play in advancing health in America. “To the more than 4 million nurses who are always there, ready to care … Thank you,” reads an AHA-AONE ad running this week in Modern Healthcare. Beyond providing compassionate care to patients and communities, nurses help drive transformational change toward a healthier future. By championing innovation and implementing patient-centered solutions, nurses influence the delivery of expert care across the country, throughout the care continuum.
