WARWICK, NY — On Wednesday, April 30, six of seven registered nurses and one holistic health practitioner, all serving in Orange and Rockland county hospitals that form the Bon Secours Charity Health System, participated in a graduation ceremony held in the chapel at Mount Alverno Center.

The Caring Advocate Education Program is a system-wide educational initiative to provide knowledge, experience and practice skills that emphasize Dr. Jean Watson’s Theory of Caring and Relationship-Based Care.

Bon Secours Charity Health System nurses are invited to apply and to be part of this annual program, which will begin in September.
