Beverly Bokovitz:

Happy Nurses Week. National Nurses Week takes place between Saturday, May 6th and Friday, May 12th. It is the perfect time to pause and take a moment to acknowledge, honor, and celebrate all of our caring and incredible nurses.

May 12th is an especially significant day as it marks the birthday of Florence Nightingale, known as the founder of modern nursing. The theme of this year's Nurses Week is You Make a Difference, which honors the varying nursing roles as well as the positive impact nurses have on everyone's lives. Please know how much your efforts to provide hope and healing are appreciated.

The meaningful influence you have on healthcare is truly incomparable and something to be celebrated, not only this week but each and every day. By providing high-quality, compassionate care, day in and day out, you are helping to improve the lives of people around the world and making each day just a little bit brighter. I hope you have a wonderful Nurses Week.
