How often when you are sick, or after you have spent time in the hospital did you stop to think how amazing nurses are? They have a level of empathy and compassion that is incomparable to any other profession. They possess a kind of hands-on care that could never be replaced by a machine. Not only are nurses empathetic, but they are intelligent, maintaining certifications regularly through classes and by keeping up with all the technical advancements in medicine. Nursing is an emotionally taxing AND rewarding career. There are levels of relationships built not only with patients, but also with the patient’s loved ones who entrust the care of their loved ones to them. Being a nurse of any kind is no easy job and without a doubt, deserve a week of celebration and recognition.

The celebration of National Nurse Week is to raise awareness and to educate people on the value of all nursing, as well as the role it plays in our healthcare needs.

For those experiencing difficulty becoming pregnant, you are likely to meet many nurses along your journey. If you seek fertility treatment options with a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE), you will work with a Fertility Nurse. After you talk to your RE, your nurse will have many roles. One of which is to be there for you to explain, thoroughly, what to expect during this challenging time. You are never alone during your journey to conceiving.

During National Nurses Week May 6th – 12th, show appreciation by taking the time to thank the nurses that you know- the nurses that are at the forefront of improving patient care and transforming healthcare.
