May 6-12 is National Nurses Week!

Nurses play such an important role in delivering the highest quality of care to their patients.  They are hardworking, committed, and compassionate.  Nurses are patient advocates and sacrifice so much in order to provide safe and effective care to their patients.  This week, we celebrate Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern day nursing, and all of the nurses who work tirelessly to provide the best patient care!

When I think about all the patients and their loved ones that I have worked with over the years, I know most of them don’t remember me nor I them, but I do know that I gave a little piece of myself to each of them and they to me and those threads make up the beautiful tapestry in my mind that is my career in nursing.
