National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6 and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.

Nightingale led a remarkable life dedicated to the field of nursing. Her influence led to numerous improvements saving countless lives. To this day, she continues to serve as an inspiration.

Nursing is not only a science but also an art. It takes skill, compassion and creativity to deal with all of today’s challenges in healthcare. From paperwork requirements, to financial considerations, to shortages in the occupation, nurses work tirelessly caring for others.

There are many opportunities in the nursing field; everything from emergency rooms, school nurses, home health, hospice, clinics and, our fileld, long term care.

The 12 nurses at Violet Tschetter Memorial Home are being honored this week for their dedication and commitment to those they serve.

These extraordinary nurses advocate for the people under their watch, these nurses listen and actively participate in the lives of our residents. They become family, crying, laughing, sharing moments and creating memories.

In honor of nurses, Violet Tschetter Memorial Home presented each nurse with a foot spa kit, because they are on their feet the majority of their 12-hour shifts.

Take a little time to tell all the nurses in your life thank you.
