President talks

Notes from the President:

As I begin my presidential term this month, I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Ron Oakes, for his guidance and leadership during this past year.  2020 has been a year of unprecedented challenges for our nation, our communities and our profession.  The COVID pandemic created fear and panic related to the uncertainty of the extent of this disease that has now affected so many.

Our economy and local businesses have learned to operate under "new normal" conditions.  The PNAWNY has also adapted to the changes and restrictions imposed.  Many of our traditional events, meetings and celebrations have either been cancelled or transitioned to a virtual forum.  Through it all - nursing has continued to rise up, be innovative, strong and resilient.  

I look forward to focusing on increasing our membership volume and encouraging involvement with the great members of the PNAWNY this year and into 2021.  

Thank you,

Michelle Wild, RN
