Happy Nurses Day! We would like to celebrate all of our residents and our support team who are nurses. National Nurses Day on May 6th kicks off the Nurses Recognition Week May 6th-May 12th. Nurses Recognition Week stems from the 1950s Dorothy Sutherland of the United States Department of Health, Education and Welfare proposed a National Nurse Day to President Eisenhower. The day has gained national recognition. Many celebrate International Nurses Day on May 12th. You may wonder why. May 12th is Florence Nightingale’s Birthday. A week is not enough time to celebrate your work, but we want to thank everyone for their commitment to quality healthcare.
