“Leveraging the Power of Nursing.”
“Not all superheroes wear capes. “
We are, and we honor all frontliners for their amazing contributions and courage during the ongoing fight against COVID-19 and through the recovery and rebuilding of our global communities.
Nurses are taught to be change agents — not risk-takers or business owners.
Recognizing that it may take years for the Nursing school curriculum to adapt, Care Home By RNs vision is to bring involvement of the most trusted profession into community-based care.
