May 4, 2017 – Happy National Nurses week! National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6 and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Florence was the founder of modern nursing and set an example of compassion and commitment to patient care. That compassion and commitment can be seen through the work all our dedicated nurses do each day. We would like to send a heartfelt thank you to our DNA nurses, nursing assistants and other care staff. We appreciate the hard work you put in each day and the empathy you exude. Thank you for all that you do!
