RWBAHC celebrates National Nurses Week

Nursing is a profession that combines both the art and science of healing. Each year over 4 million American nurses work to affect the lives of those around them. They are the untold heroes in the healthcare system.

During the second week of May, America celebrates nurses and the work they do, caring for those in need. National Nurses Week festivities begin Monday, National Nurses Day, and culminate May 12, the birthdate of Florence Nightingale, an English nurse, social reformer and statistician whose work dramatically improved the health of Soldiers during the Crimean War. She is credited as the founder of modern nursing and in her honor, May 12 has been designated as International Nurses Day.

Nurses fill many roles but ultimately the patient is always the focus regardless of a nurse’s current job. At Raymond W. Bliss Army Health Center, nurses serve in a variety of clinical and administrative positions including executive personnel (hospital commander), primary care providers (nurse practitioners), business operations, clinic supervisors, clinic nursing staff, health educators, public/community health and occupational health, case management, patient safety and Joint Commission accreditation readiness. We are proud of the work RWBAHC nurses do day in and day out. They work tirelessly with many other professionals and community agencies to ensure fully coordinated health care and services for our TRICARE beneficiaries and the Fort Huachuca Community.

Take time to thank your nurses for the job they do during your next encounter, your thankfulness will brighten their day as they hope to brighten yours.
