Starting today, we’re joining the rest of the nation and celebrating National Nurses Week! This year’s theme is 4 Million Reasons To Celebrate, a reference to the 4 million nurses currently licensed in the country in 2019.
While we celebrate our nurses every day, we asked members of our nursing recruitment team to share why they’re feeling particularly grateful for our nurses this week:
“We’re very lucky to have developed such close relationships with our nurses. The dedication, passion, and consistency they provide is something we appreciate every day. It takes a special person to be a nurse and care for someone else in such a compassionate and dedicated way.” — Alana Rothstein, Senior Staffing Manager of Nursing
“I am so appreciative of our nurses for always putting their patients first. Nursing is certainly not an easy job, and it takes a very selfless person to do what they do. Considering medical emergencies can be sudden and extremely scary, it’s great to know that our nurses are always there to bring their patients peace of mind. Their dedication really goes a long way!” — Marc Malpeli, Managing Director of Travel Nursing
“Our nurses strive to not only provide quality care, but to also build on their current skills. Because of their desire to grow and stay up-to-date on industry trends, our nurses are able to continually provide quality care using best practices in the everchanging healthcare space.” — David Daniels, Director of Healthcare Operations
“It’s amazing to see our nurses go above and beyond on a daily basis. All of our nurses are willing to go the extra mile because they truly care about the wellbeing of their patients. We’re very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such an incredible group of nurses.” — Michael Granger, Senior Director of Nursing
National Nurses Week was originally established in 1954 to honor Florence Nightingale. Today it is a national event that celebrates the contributions that nurses and nursing make to the community. Learn more: http://www.nursingworld.org/NationalNursesWeek-History
