Join your colleagues for a day of education, rejuvenation, and inspiration!
Nurses are the largest segment of America’s health care system. They are critical to the wellness of our nation as they promote and optimize the health of others. Nurses are role models, educators, and advocates. The well-being of nurses is fundamental to the health of our community, our nation, and our world. In accordance with the Healthy Nurse Healthy Nation Initiatives by the American Nurses Association, UPMC Hamot is pleased to present fresh content on emerging trends and new knowledge in building resilience within nursing with the goal of preserving, sustaining, and empowering the most trusted profession in the world.
