Director of Nursing Alfreda Maley served as emcee. She said that this year’s Nursing Week theme — “Nurses: Trusted to Care” — speaks to the “nursing lifestyle,” adding, “That’s what this is — a lifestyle of trust and caring, and not just a job.”

She also noted that the week of recognition begins on May 6, National Nurses Day, and continues through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the 19th century English woman who is considered the founder of modern nursing.

Each year the Motherhouse celebrates National Nursing Week with a recognition ceremony, and this was the second time it included a pizza party. Staff members were recognized for their service, and then the presented flowers to those sisters who have served in nursing fields.

At the end of the presentations, Sister Judy Stephens thanked Maley and the hursing staff on behalf of the Leadership Council, of which she is a member.
