Nurses, We Solute You!

Nurses are vital, crucial, necessary, needed, amazing, and brilliant groups of people. No matter where they go or what they do, they are always on duty. When there is a call for help, and a nurse is present, they are always first to the rescue. Nurses are in the circle of life from the beginning, middle, and end. When everyone has their ups and downs, nurses are there to provide the care and the emotional support everyone needs. They brave every day on the frontlines working with people who are minimally ill to the most acute. They do so much for others, sometimes forgetting to take care of themselves.

This week we commemorate what they do and who they are.


Nursing can be hard
Its heartache and tears.
Its thankless patients and overbearing administration
It’s working long shifts on tired feet
But it’s also rewarding
Nurses are protectors, guardians, and lifesavers.
Nurses are the TRUE salt of the earth.
Nurses enhance and give meaning to existence.
