This GivingTuesday, we have decided to give back to a cause that is so near and dear to us – the Long-Term Care Nursing Education Foundation.
The LTC Nursing Education Foundation – which is the charitable affiliate of the American Association of Nurse Assessment Coordination – positively impacts the lives of 1.4 million people living in nursing homes by providing educational scholarships and research grants for nurses committed to improving the quality of life and care for LTC residents.
What is GivingTuesday?
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that happens every year right after Cyber Monday.
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
We think there’s no better way to kick off the season of giving than by giving back to those in need!
Why we give.
The long-term care setting has some of the highest instances of burnout among nursing professionals, due, in part, to the nationwide nursing shortage, which is only going to continue to worsen in the coming years with the nation’s aging population.
Providing educational opportunities for nursing professionals can help them grow in their field, and encourage them to thrive in the long-term care setting. We hope that opportunities like the ones provided by the Long-Term Care Nursing Education Foundation can help drive more nursing professionals into the long-term care setting, improve the working environment, reduce nurse burnout, and ultimately, enable nursing professionals to provide the best care possible to their patients.
We could continue to list out all the reasons why we support the Long-Term Care Education Foundation, but who better to tell you than the co-founders of IntelyCare?
