Receives Valuable Partner Award from New Mexico Department of Health
Nursefinders of Albuquerque recently received a Valuable Partner Award for its work with the New Mexico Department of Health, Albuquerque Public Schools (APS), and a host of other organizations to deliver H1N1 vaccinations to approximately 11,000 Albuquerque students, parents and school staff.
Nursefinders of Albuquerque, whose parent company is one of the nation's largest health care staffing companies, was contracted by the New Mexico Department of Health to provide clinical professionals such as, RNs and LPNs, to safely and effectively administer the H1N1 vaccine. After extensive recruiting and screening efforts, Nursefinders was able to staff more than 100 qualified nursing professionals during the 12 ½ weeks of H1N1 vaccination clinics beginning in early 2010.
In addition to the elementary and middle school clinics, Nursefinders provided nursing staff at community vaccination clinics held every Saturday during the 12 ½ week program.
“The H1N1 pandemic was a crisis for many areas across the country, and Albuquerque was no exception,” said Mary Aragon, senior staffing manager at Nursefinders of Albuquerque. “We were proud to have been a part of the support and efforts in curbing the effects of the H1N1 outbreak, especially for those most at risk – the children in our community.”
Aragon also stated, “We were able to offer our deserving care givers additional opportunities to earn a living, while truly impacting the lives of community members.”
