When you or your loved ones are in the hospital, nurses provide the healing hands and hearts that touch us all. Besides taking vital signs, dispensing medication and answering questions, nurses deliver tender loving care when it’s needed most.
Many of these unsung heroes describe their career choice as more than a job; for them it’s a calling.
For the fifth consecutive year, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and ajcjobs will honor 10 of Georgia’s top nurses with the 2010 Nursing Excellence Awards at a luncheon on May 5 at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. For tickets, go to: http://bit.ly/92qaj5.
Year in and year out, nurses are voted into the top spot in the Gallup Organization’s Most Trusted Professionals poll. That’s no accident; it’s a reflection of what we celebrate during National Nurses Week (May 6-12).
Have you ever encountered an outstanding nurse who treated you or a family member? Did that nurse make a tough situation easier? Did the care you receive make a difference? Tell us about it.
