Nurses are on the front lines of this historic relief effort.
Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) February 24, 2010
Gannett Healthcare Group, publisher of Nurse.com, Nursing Spectrum and NurseWeek, launched a special Haiti Web page at http://www.Nurse.com/Haiti. The site offers real-time news updates on the medical relief effort in Haiti, photo galleries, continuing education courses to prepare nurses to meet the needs of disaster patients, nurse blogs and volunteer opportunities — the same kinds of great content nurses have come to trust from Nursing Spectrum and NurseWeek for more than 20 years.
“Nurses are on the front lines of this historic relief effort. Their stories are amazing and inspiring and Gannett Healthcare Group is proud to be the one to tell them,” says Barbara Shahinian, executive editor and vice president of editorial at Gannett Healthcare Group. “We are also connecting nurses to the resources they need to reach out to Haitian earthquake victims on their own.”
As part of a special three-month Haiti Initiative, Gannett Healthcare Group will offer education programs specific to Haiti, but also designed to prepare nurses for any major disaster. “Through generous educational grants from our partners at The Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future and Chamberlain College of Nursing, we are proud to offer 12 free webinars and four free continuing education courses dedicated to helping nurses in Haiti and in future disasters,” says Steve Hauber, publisher and CEO at Gannett Healthcare Group. Program details are available at Nurse.com/Haiti.
The Nurse.com special Haiti page will continue to evolve with the situation on the ground in Haiti. In the weeks and possibly years to come, we expect to post and print stories of nurses’ courage, ingenuity, endurance and teamwork in the face of these unprecedented circumstances.
