“From holding their hands during labor to teaching new parents how to change a diaper, nurses provide countless touches of love to babies and their families,” says E. Yuri Hermida, vice president, North America Baby Care, P&G. “Nurses encourage the bonds between babies and their families as well as the happy, healthy development of babies right from the start. As a brand that has been trusted by nurses for 40 years, we are honored to show our appreciation to nurses for all they do.”
Now through January 27, 2017, Pampers invites parents, co-workers, family members and friends to say “thank you” to extraordinary nurses by submitting a nurse nomination at www.pampers.com/thankyounurses. Three winning nurses in the care areas of Labor & Delivery, NICU and Postpartum will be announced during Nurse Appreciation Week, beginning May 8, 2017.
“Parents look to their nurses to help them through all of their baby’s first moments – from the cries and hiccups to feeding, burping, diapering and everything in between. It’s nurses who truly help new moms and dads transition into parenthood and provide touches of love that put them at ease,” says AWHONN CEO Lynn Erdman, MN, RN, FAAN. “We are excited to join forces with Pampers for another year of the Thank You Nurses Awards and help recognize the nurses who care for babies and their families. We also encourage everyone to get involved and nominate a special nurse who has touched your baby or family’s life.”
For more than 50 years, Pampers has been dedicated to every baby’s happy, healthy development, and has been trusted by nurses since the brand began working closely with hospitals 40 years ago. This long-standing relationship and respect for nurses is why Pampers launched the Thank You Nurses program in 2015 and why Pampers continues to work closely with hospitals and nurses to improve its products.
When the Thank You Nurses Awards winners are announced in May, they will receive a one-year membership to AWHONN or NANN, including attendance at the respective organization’s annual convention, a scholarship, a P&G care package, and more. Also, in honor of these nurses, three additional Pampers Swaddlers scholarships will be made available through AWHONN to help nurses from underrepresented groups complete their studies toward a Master of Science in Nursing degree.
