Nurses — dedicated, compassionate, and courageous - rise to the health challenges of the moment with our wellness in mind.
What would we do without them?
Nurses compassionately guide patients as they face life-threatening illnesses, reassure those going into surgery, help patients cope with extreme stress, and alleviate their suffering every step of the way.
Nurses were there with our loved ones in COVID-19 units when we couldn't be by their side, sharing their progress, providing a vital and reassuring link that they were being cared for.
National Nurses Week from May 6 to May 12 gives us a brief moment to honor our UHealth nurses who serve patients with devotion, utmost care, and exceptional professionalism. We celebrate their courage as they continue to protect our health and safety during a global pandemic.
Nurses are caregivers, innovators, educators, and leaders, steering the profession towards excellence in patient care. We thank each and every nurse, today and every day, for their tireless commitment to our well-being.
We invite you to celebrate a nurse and all the heroic UHealth staff who protect our health and safety at every turn. Make a gift in their honor, support our nurses and help us deliver outstanding patient care.
