About Us

Empowering Nurses and Caregivers
Yesterday, Today and the Future

Empowering People began in October of 2002 when two nurses discovered just how powerful the team teaching model could be. We believe that nurses have lives of their own and can enjoy a life they truly love by working in an educational capacity where they control their hours and schedule. Today, this model of nurse empowerment has grown our business from eight to more than 350 nurse delegation clients in care settings throughout the region.

We’re a team of highly qualified nurse delegators, educators, and administrative professionals with years of combined experience and a common goal to serve caregiving facilities and clients. Our nurses and educators come from such diverse backgrounds as home health, skilled nursing facilities, and acute care nursing. We ensure that the care we teach and supervise is always provided at a level of excellence we would expect for our loved ones or ourselves.
