Nurses positively impact the lives of many people on a daily basis. Often times, it’s the sincere gratitude that patients and their families provide that helps to motivate nurses to keep delivering compassionate care.
In celebration of this year’s Nurses Week, we asked five patients to provide some words of appreciation for the nurses who have cared for them in their times of need. Here are their words of appreciation:
Thank you…for providing emotional support
“The day that I was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer, my nurse went above and beyond to provide me and my family with endless emotional support and answers to a billion questions.

I will never forget how she made me feel, and for that, she has my eternal gratitude.” [Read more…] about 5 Patients Express Gratitude During Nurses Week
