Updated on

Many will certainly agree that nurses are the heart and soul of each and every healthcare establishment. Nurses are the frontline providers of care, working tirelessly to meet the needs of their patients day and night. Nurses are healers, teachers, leaders, advocates, and our friends during the most difficult moments of our lives.

Every year from May 6 to 12, we give credit and honor these wonderful modern day heroes for their hard work and dedication.
