Devereux salutes nurses and teachers during appreciation weeks in May

Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health is honoring the more than 200 teachers/special education teachers and nearly 300 nurses who selflessly and tirelessly give of themselves on a daily basis to improve the lives of those living with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences.

The organization recognizes the hard work and accomplishments of these Servant Leaders during the following annual observances – and year-round:

  • National Nurses Week: May 6-12
  • National Teacher Appreciation Week: May 5-11

Across the country, Devereux will pay tribute to these heroes by holding recognition events and activities in May, and special messages will be posted on the nonprofit’s Twitter, Facebook Careers and LinkedIn pages.

“Words cannot express the deep gratitude we have for our amazing nurses and teachers who humbly dedicate themselves to serving others,” said Devereux Senior Vice President of People Operations Mike Ernst. “These special people are key to our success, and we celebrate them today – and every day – for their unwavering dedication and commitment to our organization and the youth and adults in our care.”

National Nurses Week: May 6-12

The founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, once said, “I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took an excuse.” National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6 and ends on May 12, Nightingale’s birthday. 

According to the American Nurses Association (ANA), this year’s theme – “4 Million Reasons to Celebrate” – recognizes the vast contributions of America’s 4 million registered nurses. Throughout the weeklong celebration, the ADA is encouraging the public to share inspiring stories using the Twitter hashtag #nursesweek.

National Teacher Appreciation Week: May 5-11

The National Parent Teacher Association states that teachers “play a pivotal role in our children’s lives, inspiring a lifelong love of learning and discovery and making a difference in their well-being and long-term success.”

The theme of this year’s National Teacher Appreciation Week is “Teachers are Out of This World,” and the PTA is encouraging supporters to express gratitude – using the Twitter hashtag #ThankATeacher – for everything these stellar educators do to “help children reach for the stars.”
