People remember the wonderful care nurses provide but often do not realize they are also leaders in improving the quality of care provided. 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. National Nurses Week, May 6-12, is an opportunity to celebrate the care, leadership and innovations of the nursing profession.

According to the American Nurses Association president, “All nurses are leaders, whether they are in direct patient care, administrative roles or meeting consumers’ needs in new roles such as care coordinators or wellness coaches.” Raymond W. Bliss Army Health Center is fortunate to have nursing professionals who embrace their leadership roles. The nurses in the outpatient clinics have taken on additional roles and responsibilities under the Patient Centered Medical Home model in moving the medical community from a health care system to a system for health. RWBAHC hosts a wide range of professionals including nurse practitioners, case managers, administrators and executives as well as Public Health and Occupational Health nurses who are focused on providing care to the community and developing policy.

Brighten your nurse’s day. Thank them for all that they do to help keep you and your family healthy.
