Save the date! Join us October 7-11, 2024, to celebrate Pediatric Nurses Week! This week's mission is to promote pediatric nursing, the practice of nurses dedicated to promoting the optimal health of children and providing excellence in nursing care of children and their families. This week calls attention to the critical work that pediatric nurses provide to improve healthcare delivery. It is a time to reflect on pediatric nurses' contributions to patients, families, and communities. Check out what we had planned for #PNW2023 below!

Pediatric Nurses Week Webinar: Joy in Pediatric Nursing with Greg Durkin

Instructor: Greg Durkin M.Ed., BSN, RN, NPDA-BC 
Wednesday October 4, 2023, 11:00 am CT
NCPD Contact Hour(s): 1.0

Working in pediatric healthcare is stressful on the best of days, but in a post-pandemic time of a behavioral health crisis, a nursing shortage, and increased complexity of care, it’s all too easy to feel disconnected and dissatisfied with our jobs. In this humorous and interactive presentation, participants will learn about the differences between happiness and joy at work and strategies to help nurses remember that their work is not about medications administered or timecards processed, but rather the meaning we feel from the gift of service.
