The Civilian Corps of the U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) recognizes National Nurses Week as a time to honor the civilian nurses that care for Army servicemen and women, veterans, and their families every day.
“We recognize National Nurses Week as a time to celebrate the civilian nurses that are an integral component of Army Medicine,” states Dr. Joseph Harrison, Jr., Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources.
He continues, “Together, the U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps offers our sincerest thanks to the civilian nurses who work tirelessly to care for the U.S. Army Medicine beneficiaries in our medical treatment facilities worldwide.”
President Nixon issued a proclamation in 1974 designating May 6th-May 12th National Nurses Week. The week acknowledges the hard work and dedication of the millions of nurses in the United States.
The nurses in the U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps work alongside their military counterparts to care for our uniformed service members and their families. To learn more about nursing opportunities in the U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps, please visit http://www.civilianmedicaljobs.com.
