In honor of National Nurses Week, May 6-12, BAYADA Home Health Care, a leading home health care provider and national nonprofit, has launched NursesWeek.com to offer dozens of exciting resources and events designed to recognize, reward and inspire nurses throughout the country as part of the organization’s Share. Care. Dare. campaign.
Visiting our Nurses Week website places nurses at the center of activities designed to help them share their passion for nursing with current and future RNs and LPNs, including children, recent high school and college graduates and those considering a career change; self-care for themselves by indulging in complimentary pampering sessions for relaxation and rejuvenation; and dare to dream and design their individualized career paths with BAYADA through ongoing professional development, training opportunities and educational support. On the site, nurses can:
- Learn more about complimentary, celebratory Share. Care. Dare. events happening across the country

- Connect to celebratory perks and freebies

“At BAYADA, we’re committed to attracting like-minded and compassionate professionals to join us in our mission, and providing them with a supportive environment rooted in recognition, appreciation, and having fun—it’s what our brand is all about,” said BAYADA Home Health Care CEO David Baiada. “In that spirit, Nurses Week is a perfect time to pull out all the stops in celebrating BAYADA Nurses—and all nurses—to show admiration and gratitude for their hard work and commitment, and to thank them for LOVING what they do, while supporting them with tools that help them reflect and grow in their careers.”
In addition to NursesWeek.com features, BAYADA is tripling its referral bonus for current employees who recruit new-to-BAYADA nurses to join its values-based, mission-driven organization. Through this program, current employees and new recruits could share in a bonus exceeding $1,500 on average.
BAYADA’s activities during Nurses Week build on the company’s year-round commitment to all clinicians and employees, warranting the well-deserved inclusion on Glassdoor’s coveted, national Best Places to Work list in both 2018 and 2019. In addition to investing in employees through competitive salary and tailored career progression, the company also supports clinicians with workflow-streaming technology, such as tablets, electronic documentation and telehealth communications.
As a pioneer in clinical training, BAYADA is the first home care provider to offer nurses the tools to practice their skills in a clinical simulation lab. The company helps to foster employees’ individual growth with a variety of professional development programs, including nurse residency programs, specialization, and certifications; and it recognizes the commitment of its nurses and other clinicians with nearly a dozen employee recognition programs providing scholarships, incentives, and perks.
BAYADA’s Nurses Week offerings, and commitment to the nursing community, underscore the company’s transition to nonprofit as part of Founder Mark Baiada’s Lasting Legacy succession plan. The transition is designed to protect the 44-year-old company from sale and help ensure that BAYADA’s mission, vision, values, and beliefs—codified as The BAYADA Way—will endure for generations to come, for the security of both employees and clients.
