As we wrap up National Nursing Week, the executive director of the Bethesda Foundation is singing our local nurse's praises. 

Linda Peters says “We absolutely want to take time to say thank you to all of our nurses during National Nursing Week, the foundation would like to thank each and every one of you. You take care of our patients and our families during a most difficult and vulnerable time. This is such important work, but we know that it can also be very challenging.” 

She adds “To all nurses, thank you for all that you do.” 

Peters also encourages the whole community to celebrate our nurses, even in small ways, as we wrap up the week. 

“Send a thank-you card to a nurse that you know. Make a meal, bring them flowers, or post a thank-you on social media. Do something special for the nurse in your family, in your circle, or the nurse in your neighbourhood.”
