Giva joins in celebrating National Nurses Week 2015 this week, May 6-12. Anyone who has spent any amount of time in a doctor's office or hospital can attest to the fact that nurses are very special people. To quote Dr. Jean Watson, RN, Doctor, Author and Professor, "Nurses are a unique kind. They have this insatiable need to care for others, which is both their greatest strength and fatal flaw". Nurses "go there" every day cheerfully and lovingly tending to all those duties that include subjects polite conversation will not allow. And yet, most of them cannot imagine doing anything else. They receive us into the world and are by our side, helping us exit with dignity, and everything in between.
National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale's birthday, fittingly. The American Nurses Association website has lots of great information as well as many ideas and suggestions for celebrating National Nurses Week, honoring those unsung and tireless heroes and heroins. There is also a very timely and compelling book and movie documentary, The American Nurse, now showing in select theaters or available for download or purchase, chronicling the lives and unique experiences of several American nurses.
Many of Giva's customers are in the field of healthcare and we offer nursing and medical student scholarships as well. We wish to express our most sincere respect and appreciation to all of the nurses represented, not only in those companies but all over the country, for their integral role in the lives of so many.
