Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Mary Mayhew today released the following statement recognizing National Nurses Week (May 6 – 12):
“Almost everyone at one point in their life has been helped, cared for or treated by a nurse in a time of need. In honor of National Nurses Week, I would like to thank all the nurses throughout our state who work, often long hours, to ensure our vulnerable residents are taken care of. I also want to recognize the nurses who work for our Agency and support our longstanding goal of achieving better health care for all Floridians. I ask that you please join me this week in celebrating the work these compassionate professionals do for our communities.”
