Thank you to all nursing colleagues

Nurses Week is May 6-12

Dear Valued Nurses –
During National Nurses Week, we hope you know how important you are to us every day of the year. As surgeons we see our patients during crucial moments, but we know that it is you who guide them on their journey back to health – every step of the way.

You are the clinical nurses, intake nurses, prep nurses, surgical nurses, nurse anesthetists, floor nurses, and ICU nurses. You are the nurse practitioners, home care nurses, case managers, data managers, quality improvement professionals, LPNs and others who wear a variety of hats.

It is your caring hearts and healing hands that we rely on for skilled professional care in every aspect of patient healing.

This week, as every week, our scrub hats are off to you! Thank you for all you do.

R. Clement Darling III, MD
SVS, President-elect

And all of us at the Society for Vascular Surgery
