Healing Nurses. Healing Healthcare.
POWER UP NURSING is a national movement to improve the well-being and lifestyle of professional nurses. Led by nurses and anchored by U.S. hospitals, POWER UP NURSING makes an impact with hospital-based POWER UP RETREATS, a POWER UP PLATFORM (website) with ongoing education, virtual events, podcasts, e-commerce and news, as well as regional and local POWER UP COMMUNITY EVENTS.
The core of our work in 2022 focusses on hospital-sponsored POWER UP RETREATS presented in one- day on hospital campus for nurses seeking balance, well-being, and renewed energy. The POWER UP RETREAT is designed to bring delight and motivation back to the practice of nursing. “Power Up” is not just a theme but a personal and professional road map that nurses create and takeaway from the day-long retreat.
Power Up Nursing online platform launches May, 2022 while the retreats begin at hospitals in June, 2022 to celebrate National Nurses Month. For more information on how to host POWER UP NURSING at your healthcare organization or to become a corporate partner, contact:

Activities, edutainment, healthy morning snacking, and a nutritious delicious lunch are included. National partners provide door prizes and goodie bags. The hospital is also encouraged to “reward” its nurses with small gifts and/or other tokens of respect and gratitude. Hospitals retain POWER UP NURSING as an employee wellness benefit. Partners support the initiative and are promoted both in retreats and on the digital platform.
