National Nurses Week

During Nurses Week, May 6-12—we celebrate nurses like you for the vital role you play in health care every day.

Your compassion shines through

You share so much as a nurse—commitment, expertise, compassion, dedication, strength and so much more. All these positive attributes you exhibit every day don't go unnoticed. We appreciate all you are and everything you do to help improve the health of our community.

Earn CEUs

We want to do our part to help you improve patients’ lives. We’re offering complimentary webinars you can watch at your convenience as you earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs).* Presented by and sponsored by University of Phoenix.
