This week we pay tribute to our incredible nurses, members of Teamsters 117 who work at the Department of Corrections and the Washington State Nurses Association.
National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6 and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. It features a host of events across the U.S. to honor nurses for the work they do and educates the public about nurses’ role in health care.
Nursing is a challenging profession that requires patience, professionalism, and compassion. Our Local 117 nurses work long hours, often with limited resources, in stressful environments to provide critical, ethical care.
We are incredibly grateful to our nurses for the essential, exceptional services they provide. Please take a moment to thank a nurse today!
