Nurses Week 2015


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.

Matt Vera is a registered nurse with a bachelor of science in nursing since 2009 and is currently working as a full-time writer and editor for Nurseslabs. During his time as a student, he knows how frustrating it is to cram on difficult nursing topics. Finding help online is nearly impossible. His situation drove his passion for helping student nurses by creating content and lectures that are easy to digest. Knowing how valuable nurses are in delivering quality healthcare but limited in number, he wants to educate and inspire nursing students. As a nurse educator since 2010, his goal in Nurseslabs is to simplify the learning process, break down complicated topics, help motivate learners, and look for unique ways of assisting students in mastering core nursing concepts effectively.
