Although we celebrate National Nurses Week every year at WellSpan Health, the event is even more important as our dedicated nurses care for our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.  For this reason, along with 2020 being named the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, the American Nurses Association has extended National Nurses Week to become National Nurses Month.

“This year, Nurses Week is more special than ever,” said Kris O’Shea, Kris O’Shea, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Executive for WellSpan Health. “You’ve made a difference in the lives of our patients and their families during one of the scariest times in our history. As a result of your strength, resilience, and your care, a spotlight shines brightly on the important work of nurses.”

We celebrate all of the hard work that our nurses have given not only in these past few weeks, but every day throughout our system.

Watch the video to see what our nurses have to say about working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, and what National Nurses Week means to them.
