Volume 1, Issue 3  - June 2014 - Special Edition National Nurses Recognition Week


Thank You

Nursing, in all its forms, requires knowledge, competencies, dedication, and strength. National Nurses Week is an annual celebration of the many nurses who provide outstanding patient care and service each and every day. National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6 and ends on May 12 (the birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of professional nursing).

Nurses have many roles – from bedside leaders (staff nurses) to educator, advance registered nurse practitioner, nurse anesthetist, nurse leader, nurse executive, nurse informaticist, home health nurse, and nurse researcher – and serve them all with passion for the profession and a strong commitment to patients. Furthermore, nurses today provide direct care to patients; address health care policies and community health issues; and develop new knowledge.

No matter the role or the setting, at the core of it all, nurses ALWAYS have the patient’s best interest in mind, and remain the ultimate advocate for the most sick and vulnerable members of our community. During that special week, we thank you for your commitment, and the difference you make in the lives of our patients and their families. We thank you for choosing to make a difference at Premier Health. We simply couldn’t be who we are without you.
