NSNCW 2023 embraces the theme “Cultivating Kindness,” emphasizing the profound impact of compassion and empathy. It celebrates the unwavering dedication and compassion of nursing home employees, including nurses, caregivers, therapists, and administrators. The “Cultivating Kindness” theme encourages fostering a culture of empathy and understanding within the healthcare community.
