NAHC Announces Finalists for Home Care & Hospice Nurse of the Year Award

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) and its affiliate Home Healthcare Nurses Association (HHNA) announced the top 10 finalists who will compete to be Home Care & Hospice Nurse of the Year. NAHC and HHNA now invite their members, affiliated state associations, and the general public to go to www.nahc.org and vote for the winner.

Voting is open from July 16 through August 13, 2013. 

The 2013 Home Care & Hospice Nurse of the Year will be announced at the NAHC Annual Meeting & Exposition on October 31 - November 3, 2013. The winner will join NAHC members and peers when the meeting convenes at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Washington, DC.

“It is most appropriate that we make the effort to identify and celebrate the best among us, the nurses who distinguish themselves by the size of their hearts, by their professionalism, and by their work ethic,” said Andrea L. Devoti, RN, chairman of the NAHC Board of Directors. “Our focus is to highlight the impact that nurses make day in and day out in homes across the country, despite the challenges they face.”

Past Attendees Encourage their Colleagues to Join them at this Year’s Financial Management Conference & Exposition

There is still time to register to attend this year’s Financial Management Conference & Exposition July 28 – 30 in Washington, DC.

Please see what some of your peers and colleagues say about the importance and value of attending the conference, and make plans to attend this year, as well.

One such past attendee is Joe Calcutt, Chief Financial Officer of Liberty Healthcare Management who states that:

“I find the Financial Management Conference highly valuable for our attendees. We have prioritized it in our budget process over a number of other options. I have been every year and have gotten more out of this conference than a number of other excellent national conferences. In today’s challenging environment, the agenda topics and networking opportunities are even more critical to the performance of our businesses than before. It is worth the spend in the world of declining reimbursement, market changes and ACA preparation.”

Register today to secure your opportunity to improve your organization’s bottom line.

The hearing’s witnesses were: James Towey, Founder, Aging with Dignity and President, Ave Maria University; Harriet Warshaw, Executive Director, The Conversation Project; Gloria Ramsey, RN, Associate Professor, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences; Amy Vandenbroucke, Executive Director, National Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment Paradigm Task Force. The National Association of Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) attended the hearing and recently published an article, “Considering the Conversation: How do We Want it to End?” in the April 2013 issue of CARING Magazine that also relates to this topic.
