Augusta Health Nurses Week 2023


Nurses Week Step Challenge

Are you ready to step it up?! This challenge will encourage you to be physically active and focus on your well-being to step your way to the top of the leaderboard!


The challenge starts on May 6 at 0900 and ends May 13 at 0900! To sign up for the Nurses Week Step Challenge, please visit:

Below is how Wellable points will be calculated in the challenge:

  • 1 Step = 1 Wellable Point
  • 1 Mile (Walk/Run) = 2000 Wellable Points
  • Daily Maximum = Unlimited (so get to stepping!)

If you are already participating in Augusta Health’s new wellness program, Augusta Well Together, please read this important information:

  • You will be moved into a different “challenge” while participating in the Nurses’ Week Step Challenge. This means that your points will reset to zero. No worries though – when the Step Challenge is over, your points will come back!  
  • We recommend that you continue attesting to daily challenges, logging your nutrition, and logging other physical activity as you normally would – these items will appear as 0 points awarded temporarily but you will receive those points when the Step Challenge is over.
  • Once the Step Challenge is over, all activity and steps completed during the Step Challenge will count towards your quarterly goal of 10,000 using the regular conversion rate of .02 per step and 50 points per mile.

If you are NOT already participating in Augusta Health’s new wellness program, Augusta Well Together, please read this important information:

  • In order to participate in the Nurses Week Step Challenge, you will need to have a Wellable account through our new wellness program, Augusta Well Together. This will need to be completed by May 2, 2023.
  • To sign up, please go to and fill out the required fields to create an account. Please use your Augusta Health email address. If you want to remain anonymous within the platform, you can use an alias/username for the FIRST and LAST NAME fields. A welcome email will be sent after you complete the sign-up page outlining your next steps.
