Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix used creativity and social media to show appreciation for its nurses during its annual Nurses Week celebration.
Via Twitter, the facility posted a link with the message: “Happy Nurses Week 2011! Check out our nursing video to learn why BGSMC nurses love what they do!”
The nearly 20-minute video showcases several Banner nurses who share their unique experiences and answer questions, including “Why did you become a nurse?” and “Why do you love being a nurse?”
“Each time I watch [the video], I am inspired by the stories, values and recognitions that our nurses share with each other,” said CNO Colleen Hallberg, RN, MSN, FACHE. “The joy, sense of teamwork and pride in the profession is evident in each of our 2011 interviews — my own sense of joy and pride is as real today as it was during Nurses Week!”
