• History of Nurses Week

    Let’s take a look at the History of Nurses Week and some of the individual days to Celebrate Nursing… National Nurses Week is a time for nurses to be honored and recognized as a profession for the work that they do and the commitment and contributions they make to their communities.

  • Happy Mother’s Day

    Often Mother’s Day falls somewhere within Nurses Week which makes it a double-good celebration. Whether you are a mother or not, we all have had mothers.

Take time to honor yourself and practice essential self care routines. Self care is so very important for all nurses!!

    I hope everyone had a great Easter, Passover, Ramadan or whatever you celebrate this time of year! I read that it’s once every 33 years that these three holidays coincide. My fourth grandchild was born last week too. He’s absolutely adorable, and after some bumps in the road, they all emerged from the birthing process intact. Enjoy the renewal that comes with Spring. Breathe, drink in the beauty around you and do something for YOU! Happy Spring! Kathy

In our daily lives, masks and social isolation has taken a huge toll on every American.…
