THE MISSION - Provide, evaluate, modify as needed, then apply tradition-breaking approaches to uniquely providing quality and tuition-free continuing nurse education, positive nurse awareness, appreciation, and advanced nursing education scholarships for nurses throughout America.
HISTORY - In 2018, Pamela Jane Nye, a nurse with 3+ decades of nursing experience, produced the inaugural Operation Scrubs pilot even event on National Nurses Day, May 6, 2019. The venue was FantaSea One, a 4-deck megayacht based in Marina Del Rey, California. Initial statewide nurse invitees included Stroke Coordinators, Neuroscience Nurses, also Advanced Practice Nursing students from the University of California, Los Angeles. The COVID-19 Pandemic required May/2020 plans to be rescheduling for the 2nd or 3rd quarter. Those plans include: the Second Annual Pamela Jane Nye’s Operation Scrubs Nurse Education Symposium and Celebration, Nurse Scholarship Distribution, Nationwide Tuition-Free Continuing Nurse Education Symposium, and Webcasts, and the Year 2020 inaugural launch of Operation Scrubs’ “See a Nurse? Thank a Nurse Team Challenge.”

Each Team goal is to recruit 3.8+ million appreciative nurse thankers to register and post a nurse-thanking message on the the seeanursethankanurseteamchallenge registration site.
