We Love Healthcare Providers
Certainly our thanks aren’t limited to Nurse Practitioners, RN or LPN / LVN either, this list includes all nurses including CNA and nursing aids / nursing assistants! My dad and my husband have spent far too much time in the hospital in the last year or so, and I know firsthand how hard nurses work and what life savers they are – literally!
National Nurse Week Fun Facts
National Nurses Week begins on May 6 and ends on May 12, because May 12 is Florence Nightingale’s Birthday! Of course, she was a famous nurse in the 1800s who improved unsanitary conditions during the Crimean War. As a result, she and a team of nurses improved the unsanitary conditions at a British base hospital, reducing the death count by two-thirds. We’ve come a long way to Chick fil A Nurse Appreciation, but we’ll take it!
