Nurses Month Week 1 Day 1

ANA Enterprise - Nurses Month 2022 / Nurses Month Week 1 Day 1
Nurses Month Week 1. Self-Care
Healthy Nurse. Healthy Nation. Celebrating Five Years.

On May 1, 2017, ANA Enterprise launched a free nurse wellness program: Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation™ (HNHN)! Its goal? Transform the health of the nation by improving the health of its registered nurses in five domains: physical activity, nutrition, rest, safety, and quality of life. With 25,000 participants and 350 partner organizations, HNHN was on its way.

Fast forward five years and wow! HNHN now has well over 300,000 participants and 600+ partner organizations. With a growing collection of nurse-centric health and safety blogs, a thriving Facebook community , a full calendar of monthly challenges, fun giveaways, a fresh new look, an engaged Advisory Committee, and a dedicated team researcher, HNHN has so much to offer coming into our 5th year. We’ve even added a new domain: mental health!

HNHN provides resources, friendly competition, individualized health risk appraisal results, and community support for nurses no matter where they are in their wellness journey. And we remain free of charge and are open to everyone.

Come celebrate with us this “Self-Care” week, sponsored by Moxie Scrubs, with inspirational #healthynurse Spotlights, popular past challenge tips, and energizing calls to action each day. Don’t miss our #healthynurse Coffee Break, powered by CeraVe, in celebration of Nurses Month and five years of HNHN. Attendees will receive a free gift.

#healthynurse SPOTLIGHT

Amy Madsen, BSN, RN, CCM

A few years back, Amy Madsen, a nurse at Humana, decided to run at least one mile daily and set out to beat an initial goal of 80 days in a row. She has beat her goal by more than 1,178 days and running (literally)!

When the pandemic hit, Amy used running as an outlet to get rid of nervous energy, anxiety, and cabin fever. On average, Amy runs 6 miles a day, and if she doesn’t get out for a run by evening, she starts feeling uncomfortable. “For a while, running was the only time I got out of the house during COVID,” said Amy. “It gave me life.”

Visit our past #healthynurse Spotlights through the years. Each spotlight shares an intimate look at a nurse’s or student nurse’s journey and helpful wellness pointers.
