“Thanks for all your courage, caring, specialized care, and patience you give every day you work.”

“We should be celebrating their professionalism and compassion every day of the year.”

Nursing is truly holistic – a special combination of both mind and heart. It’s very gratifying when people recognize the many different aspects of what we do.

“A good nurse is essential for one’s healing and well being. Their selfless work is invaluable. Thank you to all nurses out there. You are very much appreciated.”

Whether it’s in a hospital, a nursing home, or in the community, direct patient care truly is essential. We do our best to be a strong voice so all patients have access to the care they deserve.

“A special call out to my son – a nurse as I was, and his grandparents and a great aunt were too. Thanks to all in the profession who do such great work.”

Nursing often becomes a family calling and tradition, and Nursing Week provides a great opportunity for nurses to appreciate one another and pay tribute to our profession.

“Thank you to all nurses that took care of me over 40 years.”

“I can’t tell you how much I appreciated the nurses who cared for my parents in their toughest moments.”

Unlike many other kinds of work, nursing touches people at every stage of life. That’s why our work is so rewarding. Many of us devote our careers to a specialty that helps people when they’re at their most vulnerable.

“Nurses make a difference.”

The following words, submitted by a nurse, speak for all of us.

“Thank you all for such kind words. I am an RN. I love what I do. And I do what I love and that is nursing. It’s an amazing experience to save a life, hold a hand, bandage a wound, the list is endless. Nursing is such a great profession. And I am so grateful to be able to do the things I do for patients and their families. So thank you all for acknowledging Nurses.”
