This week is National Nurses Week. Nurses play an integral role in Green House homes by empowering care teams and bringing knowledge and skills to the Shahbazim. Without nurses, Green House homes could not offer the high level of person-centered care and meaningful life to their elders, that is synonymous with THE GREEN HOUSE® Project. So, let’s take this opportunity to celebrate the nurses who take care of us, who worry about us, and who allow us to do our jobs every day.
“Every day, nurses step forward embracing new technologies, resolving emerging issues, and accepting ever-changing roles in their profession. They lead the way for their patients, colleagues, organizations, and the health care industry as a whole.”
Watch a message from Karen Daley, the President of the American Nurses Association, here.
Starting on May 6, National Nurses Week began as National Recognition Day for Nurses, but has since gained an entire week! “National Nurses’ Week was established in 1993 by the American Nursing Association to recognize and celebrate nursing professionals. National Nurses’ Week runs through May 12, which is the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the British woman considered the founder of modern nursing.”
