Every year, around the time of Florence Nightingale’s birthday, the American Nurses Association recognizes and honors nurses across the country by celebrating National Nurses Week. This year’s theme was Inspire, Innovate, and Influence. As an employer of nurses and nursing assistants, IntelyCare was pleased to celebrate National Nurses Week and those on our team who inspire, innovate, and influence each and every day.
To establish our commitment to our team, IntelyCare was thrilled to introduce our first annual Intelygence Scholarship. This $1,000 award was designed to recognize an IntelyPro who is furthering their education in the field of nursing. After reviewing dozens of applications, we are pleased to announce the inaugural winner for this award:
The 2018 scholarship goes to Pennsylvania CNA, Claudeen Nkemakolam! Here are some excerpts from Claudeen’s submission:
“Being able to care for people in such a personal way is enormously gratifying—the way everyone should feel about their job. My job gives me an opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of others: helping individuals heal and feel better. My job provides a natural environment for me to showcase my attributes as a compassionate and caring person. My job allows me to grow and develop personally; It teaches me patience, tolerance and empathy.”
“It is not only important to find a job that you love to do, but, it is also important to find a good company to work for. IntelyCare is a great company! The app makes it so convenient to choose shifts. I love the flexibility the company offers. As an employee, I am given complete control of my work schedule. Also, I can keep track of my pay in real time. They value their employees.”
“The financial burden of going back to school is never an easy one, with rising cost of tuition and books. The money from this scholarship will be well spent. It will go towards tuition, books, and other school related expenses. I plan to use my skills and talent as a nurse in the highest capacity. Not only will I strive to become a model nurse, but I also dream of starting a non-profit organization.”
We are thrilled for the opportunity to recognize this fabulous IntelyPro!! Please join me in congratulating Claudeen on being our company’s first winner of this scholarship. Way to go Claudeen!!
