SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, December 8, 2022 – Supplemental Health Care (SHC) is excited to announce its continued philanthropic partnership with Operation Happy Nurse in 2023. SHC is looking forward to expanding its commitment to supporting nurses’ mental health and wellness with Operation Happy Nurse.
With rising concerns about mental health, burnout, and the nursing shortage, Supplemental Health Care recognizes the importance of supporting nurses so they can better care for themselves and their patients. Operation Happy Nurse has been an important partner to Supplemental Health Care over the last year and SHC is privileged to support its mission to combat nurses’ work-related stress, anxiety, and depression.
In partnership with Operation Happy Nurse, SHC launched a quarterly self-care email newsletter for their working healthcare professionals, featuring helpful resources like workouts, recipes, meditations, and events. Through community building and relevant content, Operation Happy Nurse has helped SHC connect with their healthcare professionals in new ways and support them in both their careers and personal well-being.
With over 1200 members, Operation Happy Nurse is still growing and evolving. The organization is currently developing a mobile app to create a more streamlined user experience for members. Their team is also building an in-person support network for nurses and recently introduced free in-person fitness classes that will be held across the U.S. and Canada. The first class was held in November in Washington D.C. and community members can vote for their city for future classes.
