In honor of the 200th birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated 2020 as the “Year of the Nurse and Midwife.” Florence Nightingale was the founder of modern nursing and pioneered the profession for women.
The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) has partnered with Primary Care Associations and Federally Qualified Health Centers to celebrate nurses’ contributions by using the theme, “Nurses Leading with Care.” NACHC is requesting Health Centers share stories of APRNs, RNs, and LPNs who provide care in health centers and communities.

NJPCA encourages Community Health Centers throughout the State to celebrate Nurses together on May 6, 2020. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, now is the time to recognize the dedication and service of America’s Nurses who remain on the front lines caring for our patients. NJPCA has shared a sample flyer from Metropolitan Family Health Network that you can emulate at your Center. NJPCA Board Chair, Joan Dublin has also provided a summary of activities to further support the Year of the Nurse.
To inspire your colleagues, please inform Toni Granato at email@example.com on how you plan to celebrate.
