As we celebrate nurses’ week, I want to recognize each one of you who dedicate yourselves to your patients and their families. It is not a 9-5 job. We see our patient’s when they are most vulnerable, and offer them our skill, compassion, and empathy. Enjoy this day as we celebrate all that nurses do!
I want to leave you with a few quotes from the founder of the modern nursing profession, Florence Nightingale:
“I attribute my success to this-I never gave or took any excuse.”
“Let us never consider ourselves finished nurses-we must be learning all of our lives.”
