Celebrating National Nurses Week
This past week we have celebrated the nursing team who serve in the Westminster family during National Nurses Week, with interviews, raffles, parties, goodie bags, and so much more. Nursing is a calling, and now more than ever, we appreciate them and all of our team members for their dedication and sacrifice to ensuring the safety of all residents and employees.
Today, National Nurses Week ends with Florence Nightingale’s 200th birthday. Nightingale was the pioneer of modern-day nursing. Her passion for helping others and improving medicine is an inspiration for many today, who were called to follow the same path. At a time of a global pandemic, nursing commands respect throughout our society today.
