UVA School of Nursing is humbled and honored to receive Sigma Nursing's first-ever Healthy Work Environment Award at its #SigmaCHWE19 conference today ... special praise for the #HWE and #joyinwork queen herself, our beloved dean Dorrie K. Fontaine, who was the spark that made it all happen.
Congratulations to UVA School of Nursing's own beloved prof Pam DeGuzman, one of two nursing faculty in the U.S. to receive the Clinical Nurse Leader award from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. Proud!!
Our own Compassionate Care Initiative at UVA director, Tim Cunningham, on why integrating kindness and self-care is so important.
Hats off to University of Virginia's own Diversity in Nursing for a Better Community student group, who spent the afternoon with kids at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Virginia teaching hand washing, basic assessments - and laughing their way through a wild PPE race, complete with masks, drapes, gloves. Proud!
P.S. Hope we count some future nurses in this lively crowd :)
