Happy Nurses Week!

Today kicks off National Nurses Week!  Celebrating the birthday of Florence Nightingale.

Time to recognize those that work hard to take care of us.  Often they do the grunt work and provide com passion and sympathy when we’re not feeling well.  They are integral to our care and are never thanked enough.  So please thank your nurse at your doctor’s office, school, emergency room, and clinics.

We should also take time this week to focus on America’s nursing shortage and issues with the hours nurses work.

The Center to Champion Nursing in America is holding a photo contest asking for your photos of nurses leading and delivering patient-centered, collaborative health care, especially in rural areas of the country. One winning photograph will be featured in an AARP print and/or web publication.  What a great way to celebrate your nurse.
