koi Salutes Nurses During National Nurses Week

design, LLC, the home of designer scrubs
, joins the American Nurses
Association (ANA) in celebrating Nurses Trusted to Care, as part of
National Nurses Week, which kicks off today. The purpose of the
week-long celebration is to raise awareness of and educate the public
about the valuable role nurses play in meeting the healthcare needs of
the American people.

“It is an honor to pay tribute on this special day to registered nurses
everywhere who are simply indispensable”

In honor of the dedication, commitment, and tireless effort of the
nearly 3.1 million registered nurses nationwide to promote and maintain
the health of this nation, the ANA and koi are proud to recognize
registered nurses everywhere on this particular day for the quality care
they provide seven days a week, 365 days a year.

“It is an honor to pay tribute on this special day to registered nurses
everywhere who are simply indispensable,” says Kathy Peterson, founder
and CEO of koi. “Nurses provide highly skilled, safe and quality care in
a variety of settings, despite the increasing challenges to their
professional lives. At koi, we honor and salute every nurse during this
special time.”

In 1953, Dorothy Sutherland of the U.S. Department of Health, Education
and Welfare sent a proposal to President Dwight D. Eisenhower to
proclaim a “Nurse Day” to recognize nurses’ contributions to healthcare.
National Nurses Week is now celebrated May 6-12 every year, ending on
the birthday of nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale.

Traditionally, National Nurses Week is devoted to highlighting the
diverse ways in which registered nurses, who comprise the largest
healthcare profession, are working to improve healthcare. 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 healthcare
needs of American society.
