National Nurses Week is a week-long celebration, starting on May 6 and ending on Nurse Florence Nightingale’s birthday, May 12. Nurse Nightingale was a pioneer in the field of nursing, and is considered to be the founder of modern nursing. She set an example of compassion and commitment to patient care.
Nurse Nightingale’s legacy lives on in our nurses today. She would be very proud of the amazing nurses at MCC, especially over the past year. Our nurses stepped up bravely to care for our patients in the face of a global pandemic with ever-changing priorities and challenges.
In addition to the countless tasks they perform every day to take the #bestcareanywhere of our patients, MCC’s nurses have spent the past year triaging, assessing, and testing people for COVID-19, and now they are doing a heroic job of vaccinating our community against this deadly disease. Now more than ever, we are deeply grateful to our nurses for all they do to keep us safe and well.
Happy National Nurses Week to the best nurses anywhere!
