2013 National Nurses Week



When you’re a nurse you know that every day you will touch a life or a life will touch yours.  ~Author Unknown

Today kicks off National Nurses Week!

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). Each year, National Nurses Week focuses attention on the diverse ways America’s nurses work to save lives and to improve the health of millions of individuals. This year, the American Nurses Association (ANA) has selected “Delivering Quality and Innovation in Patient Care ” as the theme for 2013.

In honor of National Nurses Week (and every week), we wish to recognize our wonderful SOCPA nursing staff and express our thanks for the caring contributions you make to our practice. We are proud to have you as an integral part of the SOCPA team and we salute you!
