AtlantiCare, a health system service, is celebrating nurses throughout the month of May with a Caring Hands Healing Arts Exhibit. Their exhibit takes place during National Nurses Week (May 6-12), National Hospitals Week (May 7-13), and National EMS Week (May 21-27).
Caring Hands is an exhibition of over 60 black and white portraits showcasing and celebrating the nurses of AtlantiCare. Robyn Begley, DNP, RN, NEA-BA, vice president of nursing and chief nursing officer with AtlantiCare says:
“The pictures poignantly illustrate who these men and women are, what matters to them, and what they treasure beyond the care they provide at the bedside, in a helicopter, in Labor and Delivery, through [information technology] roles, and more. Our nurses were thrilled to lend their hands to this project.”
The American Nurses Association (ANA) designated 2017 as the “Year of the Healthy Nurse” with a Nurses Week theme of “Nursing: The Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit.” AtlantiCare’s Caring Hands exhibition perfectly captures the theme of Nurses Week, celebrating the contributions that nurses make using their hearts, minds, and hands to care for their patients.
AtlantiCare’s Healing Arts Program is a sponsored initiative designed to showcase original artwork to brighten hospital corridors, accent medical lobbies, and bring public spaces to life. You can view the images of the portraits on AtlantiCare’s Facebook page throughout May.
