Letter to the Editor: Thank you to our nurses!


For years, May 5-10 has been recognized as National Nurses Week. This year, it seems they were upstaged by teachers.

Every year a public  survey reveals the most trusted profession is nursing. Nurses teach daily at the bedside, in clinics, offices, schools and in the work place.

With the emerging shortage of physicians, nurses play a more important role … such as nurse practitioners.  So, please remember the vital part nurses play in healthcare and thank one today for their noble profession.
