Happy Nurses Week!

FEATURED ARTICLE | MAY 10, 2016 | BY LAUREN MCGOWAN, RECRUITMENT & ADMISSIONS SPECIALIST

nurses week thank you.

Nursing is a demanding profession that can, at times, feel thankless. Yet, talk to many nurses and you will hear how rewarding it is to care for patients and their families. Despite daily challenges, nurses provide expert care and compassion for people from all walks of life. They are on the front lines battling disease, illness and hopelessness with their weapons of competency and kindness. There is no doubt that nurses are vital to the functioning of our healthcare system and our communities, and in improving the lives of the patients they care for.

In honor of Nurses Week, we asked some of our current students and faculty to share their most challenging and rewarding nursing experiences, offering a small glimpse into nurses’ tireless efforts to keep us safe and healthy.

To nurses everywhere:

We recognize and appreciate your boundless effort, and we offer you our sincerest gratitude for all that you do -- from healing wounds to lifting spirits. Happy Nurses Week!

Most rewarding moment since arriving in Buffalo- A patient of mine came to class with flowers last week to say thank you and spoke to the students about how lucky they were to be in such an amazing profession!! As a CRNA we often don't get to see our patients a week after we take care of them, this was an awesome surprise and reminded me of what I love about my job-The Patients!!
