ANF expands ‘Honor a Nurse’

The American Nurses Foundation (ANF) announced that Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading provider of information and point-of-care solutions for health care, has agreed to help broaden exposure for Honor a Nurse through a major corporate donation and sponsorship agreement. “Honor a Nurse” publicly acknowledges RNs who have made a difference in the lives of others while raising money for the Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the American Nurses Association (ANA).

“Wolters Kluwer Health will enable us to expand ‘Honor a Nurse’ to reach new audiences,” said ANF Chairperson Joyce Fitzpatrick, PhD, MBA, RN, FAAN, FNAP. “Their help will significantly raise the visibility of ‘Honor a Nurse’ and the public’s recognition of the invaluable contributions nurses make to individuals and our nation’s health.”

Wolters Kluwer Health will use the Lippincott Nursing Solutions’ health care software suite to focus attention on Honor a Nurse. Lippincott Nursing Solutions, which includes Lippincott’s Nursing Advisor, Lippincott Procedures, and Lippincott Professional Development Programs, enables more than 100,000 hospital-based clinicians, providers, and universities access to current evidence-based practice information through advanced point-of-care software applications and professional development products.

“A little bit of encouragement goes a long way, especially with nurses who put their hearts and souls on the line every day,” said Susan Driscoll, chief executive officer and president, Wolters Kluwer Health, Professional & Education. “They give so much of themselves, and that’s why we are so excited to help expand the Honor a Nurse program, so we can all recognize the amazing work they do.”

Driscoll indicated that Wolters Kluwer will be using a wide variety of methods to ensure publicity for Honor a Nurse, including using the Lippincott Nursing Solutions brand, online placement on Lippincott and Wolters Kluwer Health websites, booth handouts at national nursing conferences, posts via Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest social media sites, and by additional means.
