June 2022 President's Letter

Greetings SPN!

I am excited to greet you as your new SPN President and to wish you a Happy Nurses Month! I feel so blessed to be part of this amazing profession and to be surrounded by so many who share the same desire to provide the best nursing care to children and their families. Thank you for the extraordinary work that you do every day. These past 2 years have challenged our profession more than in years past, and I commend you for your commitment and contributions. I hope you take time during Nurses Month to celebrate and recognize those who lead and innovate, as well as those who mentor and encourage you. Also, please make yourself a priority and focus on self-care to maintain your physical and mental wellbeing so you can be your best at home and at work.
