Summit Medical Group honors its nursing professionals by celebrating National Nurses Week, May 6 – 12. All Summit Medical Group nurses will be honored at a kick-off luncheon Thursday, May 5. Annually, National Nurses Week begins on May 6, marked as RN Recognition Day, and ends on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of nursing as a modern profession.
Every year, National Nurses Week focuses attention on the diverse ways America's 3.1 million registered nurses work to save lives and to improve the health of millions of individuals. This year, the American Nurses Association (ANA) has selected "Nurses Trusted to Care" as the theme for 2011. The ANA supports and encourages National Nurses Week recognition programs through the state and district nurses associations, other specialty nursing organizations, educational facilities, and independent health care companies and institutions.
“During National Nurses Week, we highlight the diverse ways in which registered nurses, who comprise the largest health care profession, are working diligently to improve the health of our patients,” notes Elena Andrews, Director of Nursing at Summit Medical Group. “We are immensely proud of our nurses. The depth and breadth of their profession is helping Summit Medical Group meet the ever-expanding healthcare needs of our community.”
