National Nurses Day is celebrated annually on May 6 to raise awareness of the important role nurses play in society. It marks the beginning of National Nurses Week, which ends on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale.
Now more than ever, due to the current public health concern, nurses are on the front lines saving lives and putting their own health at risk. NAM would like to say “thank you” for all they do. We would also like to honor our very own nurses who have been serving our community in NAM’s Pediatric Health Center (PHC).
“We are so grateful to Jackie Hooter, our LVN, our Medical Assistants, Jessica Castillo and Juana Parras, and Tonya Barnett, our Nurse Practitioner. Their selfless acts of courage every single day inspire us all,” said Karen Luther, Director of NAM’s Pediatric Health Center. “They are compassionate souls that provide the best care to the most vulnerable among us: our children.”
The PHC at NAM provides top-quality primary care for children from birth to age 18, as well as integrated comprehensive healthcare. During this time of COVID-19, the PHC has continued to treat the sick and provide the same top-quality healthcare it always has. The nurses who work at the PHC are a huge part of its success. We appreciate your service and everything you do for NAM and the community.
