National Nurses Week: Thank You, Nurses

National Nurses Week: Thank You, Nurses

We’re in the midst of Nurses Week, a time for everyone to reflect on the vast contributions nurses make to the medical world each and every day. The US has more than 4 million registered nurses, and they are some of our most trusted professionals, consistently ranking at the top of nationwide Gallup honesty and ethics polls. At Covalent Health we see firsthand the positive impacts nurses make, from our own amazing CCT RNs to the dedicated nurses our emergency medical professionals work with daily. National Nurses Week is celebrated each year in May, beginning on National Nurses Day on May 6 and ending on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. We here at Covalent Health – PRN Ambulance, ProTransport-1, Century Ambulance Service, ATS Medical Services and Priority One – all recognize nurses for the important role they play in healthcare and the contributions they have made to society. We are constantly grateful for the dedication and compassion of nurses and know we would not be able to provide the same level of care without them. Thank...
