As the Year of the Healthy Nurse comes to a close this December, it doesn't mean that the effort has to stop! This month, we are celebrating healthy eating and healthy holidays.

HNHN and the ANA have conducted research that shows only 16% of nurses eat the recommended 5+ servings of fruits and vegetables and nurses, on average, have a BMI of 27.6, an overweight range. Learn more by visiting the December 2017 Year of the Healthy Nurse page. Celebrate our final month by focusing on eating nutritionally well as we party with our friends and family. With the New Year approaching fast, consider eating healthy a part of your 2018 resolution!

Resources for creating and maintaining balance of physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, personal and professional wellbeing are available to you all year round. HNHN will be providing lots more opportunities with lots more in store for 2018 including:
