In recognition of National Nurses Week (May 6 – 12), HealthNet salutes the tireless efforts of the nurses who have dedicated themselves to promoting and maintaining the health of the families we serve.
Established by the American Nurses Association to coincide with Florence Nightingale’s birthday, National Nurses Week is a time to recognize the strength, commitment, and compassion our nurses provide all year long to patients and their caregivers.
Nursing is more than a profession; it is a calling. Under any circumstance, our nurses find a way to give a bit of themselves to every patient in their care. A single week is not enough time to acknowledge how important and appreciated our nurses are, but it gives us an opportunity to pause and reflect and to say “thank you” for the daily contributions of these dedicated professionals who are at the heart of patient care day in and day out, 52 weeks a year.
Please take time this week to thank those nurses in your life. Exceptional people choose to be nurses. Theirs is a rewarding profession, intellectually challenging and physically demanding. We honor and appreciate our nurses who accept these challenges daily.
For your dedication and commitment we say thank you!
