GirlDoc salutes Heroes With Heart
- Apr. 26, 2012 -
Every year, National Nurses Week focuses attention on the diverse ways America's 3.1 million registered nurses work to save lives and to improve the health of millions of individuals. This year, the American Nurses Association (ANA) has selected "Nurses: Advocating, Leading, Caring " as the theme for 2012. The ANA supports and encourages National Nurses Week recognition programs through the state and district nurses associations, other specialty nursing organizations, educational facilities, and independent health care companies and institutions.
Annually, National Nurses Week begins on May 6, marked as RN Recognition Day, and ends on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of nursing as a modern profession. During this week, thegirldoc.com will honor nurses by launching http://www.thegirldoc.com/
Heart_ep_47.html. Fans and customers will have a chance to nominate the person they feel is deserving of special recognition by submitting a short story and a photo which will be displayed on the website. Readers will then cast votes for the top 3 candidates. GirlDoc will publish the story of the person receiving the most votes and send them a gift box filled with medical apparel and gifts in recognition of their efforts.
Traditionally, National Nurses Week is devoted to highlighting the diverse ways in which registered nurses, who comprise the largest health care profession, are working to improve health care. From bedside nursing in hospitals and long-term care facilities to the halls of research institutions, state legislatures, and Congress, the depth and breadth of the nursing profession is meeting the expanding health care needs of American society.
