Unitek supports the Nevada Nurses Association and future of nursing at Las Vegas event.
Newport Beach, California – On October 14, 2023, Unitek Learning attended the Shining Stars of Nursing in Nevada Dinner and Awards Gala at the Aliante Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Nevada Nurses Foundation and Nevada Nurses Association hosted this annual event to honor the accomplishments of nursing leaders and student nurses. By sponsoring this gala, Unitek Learning demonstrated their support for the professional development of nurses and increasing access to quality healthcare.
“We were so thrilled to sponsor this inspirational event. It was an honor and a privilege,” said Janis Paulson, Chief Executive Officer at Unitek Learning. “The Nevada Nurses Foundation is an outstanding non-profit organization that works with the Nevada Nurses Association to create more opportunities for student nurses through recognition, grants, and scholarships. Together, we can help equip future generations with the career skills they need to succeed and improve healthcare for all.”
Throughout the gala, many recipients received prestigious awards. One of the awards recognized fifty nurses under the age of fifty who had shown excellence in their practice, phenomenal leadership skills, community service, and advocacy for others.
