Shore Regional Health Nurses Choose Giving Over Gifts for Nurses Week

The well-known axiom, “T’is better to give than to receive,” came to life during this year’s Nurses Week, thanks to the generosity of UM Shore Regional Health nurses.

According to Deedra Abner, MSN, RN-BC, outgoing chair of the Nursing Shared Leadership Global Council, this past spring, UM SRH nurses voted to forgo the gifts that they  would have received as as part of the annual Nurses’ Week celebration of Nurses Week; instead, they chose to the donate funds that had been allotted for their gifts to benefit local organizations that help people in need.

Nurses throughout UM Shore Regional Health submitted names of organizations to their Nursing Shared Leadership Global Council representatives. From the 11 submissions, four were chosen by majority vote of the Nursing Shared Leadership Global Council.

Selected to receive $400 each were Wounded Warriors, the Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Employee Assistance Fund, the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition-Maryland Chapter  (in honor of Kim’s Cause) and the UM Shore Regional Health Cancer Center’s Patient In Need Fund.

Said Abner, “The willingness of the UM Shore Regional Health Nurses to support these four worthy organizations in lieu of receiving their annual Nurse’s Week gift, reflects the outstanding dedication and teamwork of our nurses.”
