As a nurse, we have the opportunity to heal the heart, mind, soul and body of our patients, their families and ourselves. They may not remember your name but they will never forget the way you made them feel. – Maya Angelou
The members of the Board of Directors would like to extend our recognition of the effort each and every one of you has put into your education, which we know is ongoing and continuous, and your attention to the uniqueness of every human being for whom you care – whether that care comes at the bedside, in the community, as an educator, administrator, researcher, or informaticist. Each and every one of us seeks a path to improve patient care: to recognize, acknowledge, and support individuals in their lived experiences.
As you strive to improve patient outcomes, we at NANDA-I strive to make your voices heard, to ensure your knowledge and your judgments are part of each patient’s story within their health records, by providing evidence-based, valid and reliable diagnoses and diagnostic criteria.
We celebrate you today and every day. Thank you for your commitment to the health of every person.
