Sisters thank nursing staff during special week

May 10, 2012

As National Nurses Week was wrapping up, the sisters who live at the Nazareth Motherhouse were wrapping up a week of special thank yous. And the biggest token appreciation came this evening (Thursday) when the sisters treated the entire nursing staff to a supper of Subway sandwiches, small gifts and low-key recognition during a party at the Motherhouse.

Meanwhile, director of nursing Alfreda Maley presented each sister who worked in the health care field as well as the “nurse’s helpers” among the sisters to single cut roses and applause.

The theme of the 2012 Nurses Week was “Advocating. Leading. Caring.” National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6 and ends on May 12, the birth date of Florence Nightingale.
