Yesterday was Emergency Nurses Day! The day we recognize the hard work and dedication of our caring emergency department nurses. Since 1989, the Emergency Nurses Association has been honoring the Emergency Department staff at hospitals for coming in every day and working their you-know-whats off to save lives. Every year, the Wednesday of Emergency Nurses Week (which happens to be this week) has been celebrated as Emergency Nurses Day.
These nurses see so many obstacles on a daily basis, but they take it in stride and show up the next morning with a smile. So today, please take a moment to thank an Emergency Department Nurse, whether in person or by leaving a comment below, for their service and commitment to their patients and communities.
