National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6 - 12, in honor of the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
Intended to recognize the vital role nurses play in health care, it’s especially poignant this year in light of the COVID-19 crisis.
It’s fitting that the theme for the week is “Compassion, Expertise, Trust.”
Shortly after stay-at-home orders were given in Florida, nurses across GuideWell put their compassion and expertise into action as they kicked off an initiative to provide special care to our most vulnerable members.
