Recognizing Nurses

Posted on: May 6, 2020
Nurses Day 2020 / Personal Injury Attorneys / Orlando Oviedo Winter Springs Altamonte Longwood Lawyers / Beers and Gordon P.A.Every year, this day marks the start of Nurses Week. But under these extraordinary national circumstances, with nurses picking up more work, more shifts, and more anxiety than ever before, the American Nurses Association has decided that the entire month of May should be a credit to the work of these brave professionals who have allowed themselves to be on the front lines in service to our country, our state, and our Central Florida community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

By now, you’ve probably encountered a story or two about these medical heroes, women and men who either sing to their patients like Tabitha Newborn, or demonstrate as much love for their patients as they do for the well being of their colleagues, like they so often see at Advent Health. But the president and CEO of Advent Health’s Central Florida division may have said it best when he shifted his language from simply talking about a month of appreciation to celebrate nurses across the nation, and started talking about recognizing nurses from around the world for an entire year.

It’s Nurses Week as well as Mother’s Day, so it’s fitting to recognize their contributions. Nurses are with us as we cry tears of joy and also tears of sadness. They’re healers, teachers, counselors, comforters and friends. It’s only fitting that this has been declared the International Year of the Nurse. I’m awed and grateful for nurses’ courage, grace and selflessness through this crisis.
