Nursing Week – Celebrating Our Health Heroes

May 11-17 is Nursing Week, and there’s no better time to celebrate those frontline heroes of our health care system who keep us safe and healthy, not just during COVID-19, but every day.

As the world practices physical distancing, the courage, resilience, knowledge, and expertise of Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners are on full display.

They are testing for COVID-19, caring for patients and saving lives while facing risks to their own health and that of their families to protect us all during the pandemic.

So please, take a moment this week to celebrate and thank a nursing health hero, knowing that when this pandemic passes, Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners will continue to save lives every day.
