In honor of National Nursing Week, University offers free gift

PHOENIX, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- For all that they do, and have done throughout history, Grand Canyon University (GCU) celebrates the country's most respected profession this week with special gifts and inspirational messages in honor of National Nursing Week, May 6-12.

"Nursing professionals are consistently ranked at the top of the list in terms of honesty and integrity, yet there still aren't enough entering this important profession," said GCU's College of Nursing and Health Sciences Vice President of Strategic Business Alliances Fran Roberts, RN, PhD.

GCU is honoring nursing professionals who visit their web site www.gcu.edu/thankyou with a free gift - a USB port valued at $15 - and a powerful message from Roberts about how continuing education in the nursing field is critical to maintaining a strong professional outlook and to remain relevant in an increasingly competitive healthcare environment.

"We've all read and heard about healthcare institutions cutting back, just like other industries," said Roberts. "The nurses that are being recruited and retained are the ones with advanced education - and there's no better time than the present to invest in yourself, continue to build your knowledge and your confidence in your chosen profession," said Roberts.

In addition to the complimentary gift, GCU is delivering fruit baskets to healthcare institutions throughout the state, thanking nursing staffs for their dedication.

Registered nurses remain at the top of Bureau of Labor Statistics' growth projections, even though there are an estimated 2.9 million nursing professionals in the United States.

"Despite where the economy is today, healthcare institutions will once again see a high demand for services and we'll be back where we were - needing more highly educated nursing professionals. We want to make sure that message continues to resonate," Roberts said.
