HealthCare-PSEA celebrates National Nurses Week
Pennsylvania nurses are the bedrock of our health care system. They are the first ones patients encounter, and the people who provide high-quality, compassionate care day in and day out.
HealthCare-PSEA is celebrating National Nurses Week May 6-12 by recognizing nurse members and the critical role they play in their communities.
"Our health care system just wouldn't work without nurses,'' said HealthCare-PSEA President Sandra Zubek. "This is a great chance to recognize the amazing work nurses do.''
Aside from the critical role HealthCare-PSEA nurses play in tending to patients, they educate patients and their families about disease prevention, ensure patient safety, and coordinate care. They also face unprecedented challenges in an ever-changing profession, including sweeping patient insurance changes, demanding new data-driven accountability standards, increasing technology use, and shifting medical knowledge.
Despite the challenges, HealthCare-PSEA's nurses bring the very best clinical expertise and specialized training to the health care delivery system
Whether advocating for patient safety, counseling a family, or taking care of a sick child, nurses are making our communities healthier and safer places to live. Take a moment May 6-12 to thank the nurses and health care workers you know for the valuable work they do.
