Joint Commission Set for Nurses Week

A podcast and Facebook discussion are part of the accrediting organization's preparations for the May 6-12 event.

The Joint Commission is preparing for National Nurses Week, set for May 6-12, with various activities, including a currently available podcast and a Facebook discussion the accrediting organization is promoting..

The podcast on the organization’s Facebook page features Ann Scott Blouin, Ph.D., R.N., executive vice president of The Joint Commission’s Division of Accreditation and Certification Operations. She discusses her experience as a nurse and what she finds fulfilling in her role as a nurse and nurse executive. The Facebook discussion askes nurses to share their stories of what makes their work fulfilling. A letter is coming from Blouin later this month to chief nursing officers at commission-accredited organizations thanking them and their staff for their hard work and commitment to patient safety.

“While The Joint Commission celebrates nurses every day, National Nurses Week provides a special opportunity to thank the more than two million nurses throughout the United States who positively influence the lives they touch,” said Blouin. “As nurses, we work in many different settings and serve in many roles, but all of us share a single focus on keeping patients safe by providing quality care. The Joint Commission shares this goal and believes that nursing is the cornerstone for safer, more effective care today and in the future.”
