Thank You for Being Essential
Nursing can be a choice, a passion, or a calling. But whatever leads you to the profession, you’ll find yourself at the very heart of healthcare. Nurses are at the core of healing, serving as leaders, supporters, caregivers, and compassionate professionals.
Throughout May, Walden is celebrating nurses and their leadership, heart, and commitment. In addition to our gratitude and appreciation for the vital role you play, Walden also supports your ongoing learning and development through coursework, seminars, and nursing events. We encourage you to revisit this page for new communications and activities as Walden continues to support nurses throughout the year.
