May 2021 Nurses’ Week: Unified, Reliable, Ready
This year’s Nurses’ Week theme, “United, Reliable, Ready,” supports the continued focus and recognition of the impact of nursing during COVID-19 and reinforces the unified health care team’s role in support of current Department of Defense priorities to protect our service members, their families and our workforce; maintain military readiness to defend the nation and its interests; and support the national COVID-19 response. Providing this educational forum highlights the great work nurses across the Military Health System are doing to improve clinical readiness, integration of teams, safety, and quality care.
New classes will be added from 6 May - 12 May. All courses will remain open until 12 November 2021.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of Physicians, Nurses, Physician Assistants, Social Workers, Certified Counselors, Healthcare Executives, and other health care professionals who support/care for U.S. active-duty service members, reservists, Coast Guard, Public Health Service, National Guardsmen, military veterans and their families.
The topics covered offer continuing education (CE)/continuing medical education (CME) accredited content to nurses and other health care providers and support the full range of military operations in order to sustain the health of all those entrusted to DHA’s medical care. The event will:
- Offer CE/CME credit that can be accessed enterprise wide as a home study activity from 6 May to 12 November 2021.
- Celebrate work, research and lived experiences by subject matter nurse experts.
- Recruit future DHA enterprise staff into MTF settings by offering personal growth and development opportunities.
This CE/CME activity is provided through DHA J-7 CEPO and is approved for a maximum total of 5.0 CE/CME credits.
