Hello, NGNA Members…
We hope your Thanksgiving Holiday was filled with family, friends, and sharing of old and new memories. Christmas is just around the corner and will be here before we know it. Hopefully, many of our service men and women will be able to come home on leave and be with their families.
Your Board of Directors and Executive Director have been attending to the 2016 Strategic Plan and several additional items since our meeting in November. Our next meeting is on December 16th and the agenda is full. We are planning two meetings in January.
Our Mission and Vision Statements are guiding ideas discussed and decisions being made. I recently read a thought by T.D. Jakes, “If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.”
NGNA has a passion/purpose and that is to care for the older adult. Our Mission Statement, “To support best clinical practices that enable nurses to optimize outcomes for older adults and to provide resources that advance member interests” is dedicated to meet the needs of our present and new members as they care, protect and advocate for older adults designated to their care.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND THANK YOU FOR BEING A MEMBER OF NGNA
All the best,
Joanne Alderman, MSN,RN,BC,APRN, FNGNA
