UND salutes nursing professionals during National Nurses Week
The dedicated student nurses, alums and other nursing field professionals from UND have their own stories to share
From assisting with life-threatening ER crises to delivering babies and caring for the elderly in their last moments, nurses perform some of the most difficult and heartbreaking tasks in the medical world. As workers who perform the most essential health care tasks, nurses often serve as the first point of contact for most patients.
This week, for National Nurses Week (May 6-12), the University of North Dakota salutes the contributions and sacrifices of these amazing professionals and reminds us to thank the medical professionals who keep us healthy.
It is celebrated between May 6, National Nurses Day, and May 12, the birthdate of celebrated nurse Florence Nightingale.
Check out the stories and articles below of our dedicated student nurses and other nursing field professionals at the UND School of Nursing & Professional Disciplines:
