Devereux celebrates teachers and nurses during recognition weeks

At 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 6-12
  • National 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!
