In honor of National Nurses Week, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius issued an official statement recognizing the contributions nurses make toward the health of the nation.
"During National Nurses Week, we recognize the incredible contributions that nurses make to keeping America healthy. Every day, America’s nurses bring commitment, leadership, and vision to the Nation’s health system. They fill many roles – as care providers, educators and researchers. There is no setting where health care is delivered where you won’t find a nurse…
This National Nurses Week, I want to thank nurses all over the country for the critical work they do on the frontlines of health care. Working together, we will bring better care and better health to all Americans."
