Thank you nurses! Let’s get a round of applause for Capital Region nurses, submitted by viewers on News10’s Facebook!

National Nurses Day celebrates the contributions, commitments, and sacrifices made by nurses across the U.S. They play a pivotal role in our society all the time, and it’s more important than ever to honor their work during the current international health crisis.

Send a thank you to a nurse in your life by calling them up, sending a thank you note, sharing a story with a #NationalNursesDay shout out on social media, or donating to a hospital or medical service like Albany Med.

National Nurses Week ends May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was an English social reformer and statistician, and is considered the founder of modern nursing. Dubbed the “Lady with the Lamp” because she made rounds after dark, She rose to fame caring for the wounded in the Crimean War. May 12 is also International Nurses Day!
