Happy National Nurses Week!

National Nurses week is celebrated each year to bring awareness and to honor the important role nurses have in our lives and the healthcare profession.
After years of education, performing nursing care incorporates being the patient advocate, caregiver and teacher while also using their education and skills in being observant and assessing the overall patient. Communicating this information back to the physician is important, as it assists and assures the right diagnosis and treatment.
A nurse brings patience and empathy to all those they care for. The job can be rewarding and fulfilling as well as emotionally and physically demanding. Here at Brothers of Mercy, we are grateful to all those with the desire and calling in becoming nurses! We appreciate and recognize your contributions to our wellness and well being. Thank you all!
