Nurses going, going, gone? — Viewpoint, May 7, 2012, By Debi Quirk #nurseup #nursefriendly

Nurses going, going, gone? — Viewpoint, May 7, 2012, By Debi Quirk #nurseup #nursefriendly:”No other health-care provider spends as much time caring for patients than nurses. During their eight to 12-hour hospital shifts, they are at the patient’s beside, administering treatments, tending to their patients’ needs, and making critical decisions in their care.
In addition to providing crucial patient care, many nurses also act as strong advocates of polices to improve the health of patients and their communities, to conduct research, and to educate.
So it is fitting that each year we honor their contributions and their compassion during National Nurses Week, celebrated annually from May 6 through May 12 — the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
