The American Nurses Association has designated 2017 as the “Year of the Healthy Nurse.” Join them during National Nurses Week, May 6–12, as they explore this year’s theme, “Nursing: the Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit.” It’s all about celebrating nurses like you who lead the charge for health and wellness.

Each year, on average, about 3 percent of patients fall in a U.S. hospital. About one-third of the falls result in injury, with an average cost of $14,000 per patient, said Katherine Jones, Ph.D., associate professor in the UNMC Division of Physical Therapy Education.
