Nurses are recognized for their hard work and dedication to patient care during National Nurses Week (May 6 – May 12, 2015). The nursing profession is the largest segment of the nation’s healthcare workforce. Nurses provide primary care services across a wide spectrum of healthcare settings, their duties ranging from teaching and counseling patients to researching more effective ways to deliver care. This year’s theme is “Ethical Practice. Quality Care.” Our nursing faculty here at EFSC are certainly doing their part in shaping the future of health care by preparing our nursing students to be the best in delivering the highest level of quality care to their patients. The CTE gives a big THANK YOU to all the nurses out there especially to our nursing faculty and students right here at EFSC. If you see a nurse, be sure to tell them thank you for all that they do!
