Clinician's Corner May

In this month's Clinical Corner, Director of Clinical Services Bobby Cupp RN BSN would like to wish a Happy Nurses Week to all nurses. Enjoy this week, but just remember every day is really NURSES DAY. Take pride in knowing that nursing is rated the most honest and ethical profession for the past 16 years.

Inspire, Innovate, Influence

National Nurses Week for 2018 starts May 6th and ends May 12th, on Florence Nightingale's (the founder of modern nursing) Birthday. This year's theme is "Nurses: Inspire, Innovate, Influence". How accurate and true is this theme. Nurses inspire new nurses to progress in their career as well as inspire patients to get better. Nurses innovate new and better ways to take care of patients and grow their profession. And they influence their peers, families, and patients in so many positive ways.

Why Every Week Should be Nurses Week

Nurses are vital roles in everyday life and experiences. And recognizing them for just one week seems very minimal. That's why we found 15 reasons why every week should be Nurses Week:

  • They survived nursing school
  • They are the front line of care
  • They often receive less recognition than doctors
  • They are selfless and giving
  • They see their share of sickness and death
  • They are always learning new things
  • They are pretty much geniuses
  • They sacrifice nights, weekends, and holidays
  • They always put the patient first
  • They have no idea what each day will bring
  • They treat their patients with patience
  • They forge their own paths
  • They aren't afraid to get their hands dirty
  • They put their heart on the line
  • They have a passion for what they do
