National Nurses Week is May 6th through 12th, which occurs during the week of Florence Nightingale’s birthday. In 1963 the leadership in United States officially established this special week for a Special Profession. Nursing is a fellowship of hope and healing for those who are ill and hurting.
In America there are 2.7 million RN’s, 752,300 LPN’s and 1.5 million Nurses’ Aides. The Neighborhood Health Clinic has over 100 volunteer nurses, many whom have served for over 14 years and with a deep commitment to caring for those in need.
We thank our brothers and sisters who have come to share their skills, talent and compassion in the delivery of care for low-income workers in Collier County.
We encourage all who read this to express your appreciation and respect for the nurses in your life. Remember the times they brought you comfort.
Thank you Neighborhood Health Clinic Volunteer Nurses for your dedication to improving the lives and health of those who are less fortunate.
