Nurse Practitioner Week & Radiologic Technology Week
This week we are proud to recognize two very important groups that help make Rebound a premiere spot for patient care- our nurse practitioners and our radiology techs!
Nurse Practitioner Week celebrates its 50th year since the first NP program was established at the University of Colorado. Now more than 205,000 NPs are licensed to practice in the United States. This week we honor the profession, promote public awareness, and salute the NP workforce.
These professionals are essential members of our team-based approach to patient care.
If you see one of our nurse practitioners this week, be sure to thank them for making a difference. We are lucky to have an exceptional group, and we couldn’t do what we do without them!
Get to know our nurse practitioners below.

National Radiologic Technology Week® is celebrated annually to recognize the vital work of R.T.s across the nation. The celebration takes place each year during the week that includes Nov. 8 to commemorate the discovery of the x-ray by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen on Nov. 8, 1895.
The week-long celebration calls attention to the important role medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals play in patient care and health care safety.
We have a great group of imaging professionals here at Rebound! Please be sure to wish them a “Happy Tech Week”!
