celebrates teachers and nurses during recognition weeks
Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health, we celebrate our nurses and teachers all
year long. But during the following national observances (see below), we really
want to give our nurses and teachers a special shout out:
- National Nurses Week – May
Teacher Appreciation Week – May 8-12
“Devereux is extremely proud to recognize its outstanding
nurses and teachers who positively impact the lives of the many children,
adolescents and adults we serve every day,” said Vice President of Human
Resources Tim Dillon. “They are a
true embodiment of our mission – to unlock and nurture human potential for those
living with emotional, behavioral or cognitive differences.”
Throughout the second week of May, Devereux centers
across the country will hold recognition events to show appreciation for our
nurses and teachers who continually demonstrate an unwavering commitment to our
mission and the individuals we serve. We also plan to share stories and photos of
these celebrations on our Facebook Career and LinkedIn pages, so check these social media sites
throughout the week!
