Help Us Honor: Year of the Nurse

This year, Riverside nurses proved again they are brave and compassionate heroes showing up daily to COVID units, holding the hands of our highest-risk patients in nursing homes and during cancer treatments, and in every physician’s office. Before the year began, the World Health Organization designated 2020 the Year of the Nurse. This year it is especially timely to show our appreciation!

Riverside is excited to launch the Year of the Nurse Fund which will provide clinical tools that assist our nurses in their essential work and to provide professional training. The Foundation will work directly with nursing leadership to select and fund projects of highest priority and impact to both nurses and patients.

Will you consider making a gift to honor a nurse you know or in appreciation of nurses collectively? All honorees celebrated with a gift will be listed on the Year of the Nurse web page
