Dear AAIN-NJ2 Family,

Greetings to all members of AAIN-NJ2!!! 

Happy Holidays and New Year 2022!!!!

The Omicron surge has put New Jersey back at the epicenter of the pandemic as we step into the year 2022. Thank you to everyone for doing more than your share to help support this surge by providing care for our patients especially during this holiday season. This reminds everyone that we nurses never stop, we are here to serve our community with love and kindness regardless of the compassion fatigue and burnouts that we had faced consistently through the past two years. 

I’m honored to serve our wonderful community of nurses who had been working hard every single day from the frontline to the board room. Please reach out and seek help when you are tired and burned out. We will move forward together in this COVID-19 battle.  

Come join me and take charge to be part of this history in being a change agent by helping one person every month to get fully vaccinated as we step in to 2022!!! 

Thank you!!!

Uma Venugopal MSN, RN, CCRN-K
