Did you know that registered nurses make up the largest sector of the health care professions? We are 3.1 million strong and according to national surveys, nursing has remained the most trusted profession for the past decade. On a humorous note, it has also been reported that nurses drink the most coffee of any profession.
During the week of May 6-12, Stress Resources is joining the American Nurses Association in celebrating Nurses: Advocating, Leading, Caring, as part of National Nurses Week 2012. The purpose of the week long celebration is to raise awareness of the value of nursing and help educate the public about the role nurses play in meeting the health care needs of the American people.
In honor of 2012 National Nurses Week, Stress Resources is holding a Real Nurse (RN) contest for all nurses (current and retired) and nursing students.
