Celebrate National Nurses Week-May 6-12


Today is the first day of National Nurses Week. Nurses are 2.9 million strong in the United States and comprise the largest sector in the healthcare workforce. Without question, nurses make a huge difference in our patient's lives every single day. A career in nursing is as varied as the kinds of ice cream found in the local grocery store. Major advancements to the profession have occurred over the past several decades, including practice based on evidence and an educational background required to deal with the technology of the 21st century.

As difficult and challenging as a day in the life as a nurse might be, most nurses would not trade their careers for the world.

Congratulations to America's Nurses!!

Altough it is great to celebrat National Nurses Week, what we do not need is another big daddy government agency. Stop the Nanny State.

Anonymous,

What we need are the nurses that will take care of you when you are sick. We aren't talking "big daddy government agency"....we are talking about a national representative for the nursing profession who will promote the health of this nation through the one profession that actually PERFORMS THE WORK REQUIRED TO HEAL THE SICK!

Where in the world does this fit into the Nanny State? If anything, there will be an increase in the Nursing State and you, my friend will benefit, as we all will. The health of this country depends on the health of our nursing profession.

The more nurses we have, the higher profile we can give the profession, the better qualified the candidates and the better the healthcare provided to the citizens.
