May 6th – May 12th is National Nurses Week.
Nurses of Cape Ann and Around the World, Join me in the Celebration!
Nurses make a meaningful difference in people’s lives every day. Considered by many to be the ‘Heart & Soul’ of health care, nurses often work long hours and put others’ needs before their own. Nurses work in a variety of positions and settings, at the bedside in hospitals, extended care facilities and hospice, in wellness and integrative medicine centers, medical offices, schools, rehabilitation, public health and community centers, people’s homes, private practice, administration and even battlefields.
Historical nurse pioneers and leaders such as Clara Barton and Florence Nightingale were, and continue to be inspiring role models for nurses around the globe.
