Sterling Regional MedCenter honors area nurses
Annual National Nurses Week celebrated May 6-12
STERLING, CO (April 18, 2014) – Sterling Regional MedCenter invites nurses from the community to join hospital nursing staff for tea to celebrate National Nurses Day. The event is Wednesday, May 7, at 9 a.m. in the main lobby of the hospital.
The Community Tea is a chance for current and retired nurses from all of the different agencies in the community to meet with nurses from the hospital. No RSVP is required and all nurses are invited. “We don’t want to leave anyone out,” said nursing administrative assistant Terry Brigham. “We want former, current, and retired nurses in the community to come together, meet our staff, and be recognized for their contributions to the nursing profession.”
About 30 people attended the event in 2013.
National Nurses Week is celebrated May 6-12 this year. The recognition is celebrated around the world to mark the contributions nurses make to their communities. The week typically falls around May 12, which is the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, widely thought of as the founder of modern nursing.
