President's Message

Posted: May 16, 2023

Well, we have “officially” made it through the COVID-19 pandemic—the Public Health Emergency ended last Thursday. I think that it’s safe to say that we have changed both as people and as a profession. In the short term, nursing now must resume completing their own admissions. That flexibility ended with the Public Health Emergency. We have work to do on the advocacy front to address the myriad issues around telehealth, as well as the financial sustainability and stability of the home health industry, though.

We can discuss this and more of your issues and concerns next week at our first Virtual Town Hall of 2023. It is Wednesday, May 24, 2023, at 8 PM EDT. I will share with you our newly adopted Strategic Plan for the next three years, as well as a few other important updates. But I hope to spend more time listening to you, our members, than talking. I hope to see and hear you there!
