Transplant Nurses Day- April 17, 2019
My Transplant Nurse: An Avenger of Transplant
2019 Transplant Nurses
Stacia Hays, DNP CPNP CCTC
In April 2006, ITNS created Transplant Nurses Day to raise awareness of the unique contributions transplant nurses make in the lives of the people with whom they work, especially their patients. The celebration takes place the third Wednesday in April, this year April 17, and recognizes the skill and commitment of transplant nurses around the world.
As appreciation of this important day grows, ITNS is committed to creating more opportunities for nurses to celebrate their contributions. The Transplant Nurses Day Essay Contest allows patients to nominate an ITNS transplant nurse who has made a difference in their lives. The winning essay will be featured in a future issue of the ITNS Insider. In addition, the nurse will receive a recognition award, a letter sent to his or her supervisor, and acknowledgement on the ITNS website and in an ITNS E-Updates membership e-mail.
All entries must be submitted by Friday, 1 March 2019. For eligibility and more information, please view the official entry form. New- submit your nomination online.
