HAPPY NURSES WEEK!

The theme for National Nurses Week in 2020 is Compassion|Expertise|Trust.

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6, also known as National Nurses Day, through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. This week is devoted to highlighting the diverse ways in which registered nurses work to improve health care.

We have never been able to repay nurses for all the work they do. For how thankful we’ll always be, nothing can repay the sacrifices they make in supporting doctors, consoling families, and being friends to patients. They make doctor visits and hospital stays a little more compassionate. This is all in addition to their actual jobs, which require tremendous skill and years of education, all of which have been put to the ultimate test in light of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
