Thursday, June 18, 2020, marked the beginning of the 43rd annual National Nursing Assistants’ Week. Cooper Chief Nursing Officer and Senior Vice President Kathy Devine, DrNP, RN, shared these remarks on behalf of the entire Senior Nursing team:
“This week provides a timely opportunity to foster and highlight the incredible work of Cooper University Health Care nursing supportive care team members. Nursing assistants, companions, and technicians serve as the glue and rock of our care teams, taking on countless patient care tasks and wearing many hats. Working across different settings throughout the health system, the dedication, compassion, and energy of our nursing assistants and technicians serve as a vital link between our patients and the nurses as well as the entire multidisciplinary team.
“Please join the entire Patient Care Services department from Thursday, June 18 through Wednesday, June 24 as we celebrate, honor, and thank this awesome team for all they do for our patients and community!”
We are so thankful for the work of our #CooperTeam!
