Headline about thanking nurses for the difference they make every single day

Bring a Little Taste of Happiness this Nurse’s Day 

Apr 25, 2023Rachel Pugh

National Nurses Day is May 6, 2023, and it's a special day for nurses around the country. That's why we want to make sure you're ready for it. In honor of this important holiday, we’d like to share 5 reasons why it’s so important to show your appreciation for them on National Nurses Day. 

1. Nurses are the backbone of healthcare and make up 75% of the workforce in hospitals. They are the ones who take care of patients, administer medications and treatments, assist doctors during surgeries and more. Without nurses, our healthcare system would be much less efficient and effective than it is today.

2. Nurses are responsible for everything from diagnosing serious illnesses to providing comfort during a patient's final moments. Without them, we would be lost. They’re the ones who help keep our healthcare system running smoothly. Without them, it would be impossible to provide quality care for patients across the country.

3. Nurses make a difference in the lives of others. They are there when you need them most, and they do their job with passion and dedication. Nurses are often overlooked when it comes to celebrating holidays, so we want to change that this year. They’re the ones who provide essential care for patients every day, and they often go above and beyond their duties in order to ensure that patients are healthy and happy. Without nurses, our hospitals would be a much different place.

4. Nurses are the unsung heroes of our healthcare system. They are the ones who care for us when we’re sick and need a helping hand. Nurses provide emotional support, encouragement, and comfort to those suffering from illness or injury.

5. It's important to remember that nurses are a vital part of our healthcare system. They work tirelessly to ensure that patients receive the best care possible. In fact, they often must juggle multiple tasks at once while caring for patients who need round-the-clock monitoring.
