4-Million Reasons to Celebrate National Nurses Week
National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6, also known as National Nurses Day, through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
National Nurses Week is a time for everyone – individuals, employers, other health care professionals, community leaders, and nurses – to recognize the vast contributions and positive impact of America’s 4-million registered nurses.
Like nurses across the country, Speare Memorial Hospital’s nurses dedicate their lives to caring for others in times of need while working relentlessly to improve the health of the populations they serve. Speare’s 110 nursing professionals are focused on delivering excellent healthcare to their patients and families, while leading and participating in projects and initiatives to elevate quality, safety, and the patient experience.
In addition, one third of Speare’s nurses have achieved rigorous, nationally recognized, professional certifications that objectively validate their nursing knowledge and expertise.
Speare and the Plymouth community are truly fortunate to have this wonderful group of nursing professionals and we take this special time to appreciate and thank them!
