As part of the Nurse Week celebration at Pella Regional Health Center, nursing staff who have participated in the NEW (Nursing Excellence Within) Program from 2019 are honored. The NEW Program is a way to recognize and reward registered nurses within Pella Regional for their professional and personal growth and accomplishments.

The program centers on professional development, professional practice and behaviors, outcomes and community connections. There are 3 levels of participation, with each level requiring additional time and commitment. Examples of activities that could apply include obtaining an additional degree or certification, acting as a preceptor to students or volunteering within the community.
