Nephrogy Nurses Week
September 8 - 14, 2013
To honor the dedicated nephrology nurses who care for patients with kidney disease, ANNA has designated the second full week in September each year as Nephrology Nurses Week.
ANNA launched Nephrology Nurses Week to give employers, patients, and others the opportunity to thank nephrology nurses for their life-saving work. In addition, ANNA also hopes to spark interest in other nurses about the multifaceted career opportunities available in nephrology. One of the most diverse nursing specialties practiced today, nephrology nurses care for patients of all ages who have, or are at risk for, kidney disease.
ANNA has chosen the theme "Nephrology Nurses Take Action" for Nephrology Nurses Week. Nephrology nurses use their vision, knowledge, and skills to improve patient outcomes. Caring for patients with kidney disease requires nurses to be highly skilled, well educated, and motivated, and nephrology nurses cite the variety and challenges of the specialty as fueling their ongoing passion.
ANNA is proud to honor nephrology nurses throughout the year, but especially during Nephrology Nurses Week. Visit the following link for further information.
