Celebrating Our Success!

National Nurses Week – May 2014

photo

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6, also known as National Nurses Day, through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. We joined the celebration by recognizing the contributions of our own dedicated nurses. The week-long activities included receptions, financial and health information, a pre- Mother's Day vendors fair, and a high school nursing students tour.
