2023 Year in Review: How Compass One Healthcare and Healthy Nurse Healthy Nation Work Together to Support Our Nation’s Nurses
As the largest subset of health care workers, nurses are critical to America’s healthcare system. The Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation™ (HNHN), is a program of the American Nurses Association Enterprise designed to improve the health of the Nation's 4.4M nurses - one nurse at a time. Compass One Healthcare is proud to partner with HNHN, focused on improving the caregiver experience in hospitals all over the country.
National Magnet Conference: This year, Compass One partnered with representatives from the American Nurses Association (ANA)’s Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation™ program at the National Magnet Conference® and ANCC Pathway to Excellence Conference® in Chicago, allowing our team to engage and connect with nursing colleagues and administrators, gaining valuable insights into how to better support caregivers.
During the Teaching Kitchen Presentation, Corporate R&D Chef Jay Ziobrowski got creative with items commonly found in the pantry and fridge, while National Director of Wellness & Sustainability, Lisa Roberson shared the nutritional benefits of these items, and how, by upcycling you can reduce food waste and save money.

Compass One Healthcare’s Socktober Donation Drive was well received at the conference, collecting 350+ pairs of socks for RefugeeOne, the conference’s local charitable organization this year. In addition to attendees donating socks, C1H promoted the conference’s Text-To-Give option (which was a 50/50 split for the Foundation and RefugeeOne), where attendees donated $31K+ and sponsors donated $40K.
Ongoing Research and Publication: Each month, the official peer-reviewed journal of the American Nurses Association (ANA) includes features and articles developed to keep nurses informed of the latest advancements in nursing practice and healthcare, including articles written by thought-leaders who provide the relevant and engaging content. Morrison Healthcare’s RDN Palina Lancaster (MS, RDN, LD) contributed to the July Issue with Boost Your Mood with Food, offering guidance for nutritionists to help keep patients healthy and empowered through dietary changes.
