Nurses Inspire Innovate Influence National Nurses Week 2018 American Nurses Association

Nurses as a professional group have been ranked by the American public as the #1 most honest and ethical profession. Nurses embody a commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of their patients. In each interaction, they bring the high-level skills required to care for the diverse needs of a diverse populace, and they do it with respect for the person and integrity of the situation.
“To do what nobody else will do, a way that nobody else can do, in spite of all we go through; that is to be a nurse.” – Rawsi Williams, BSN, RN.
Wisconsin has over 80,000 nurses who work in a variety of settings and who tirelessly commit each and every day to the health and wellbeing of their patients. Here at IndependenceFirst, we are fortunate to have over 20 of the best nurses who work in our Personal Assistance Services program. They work each day in service to individuals with disabilities, empowering them to live independent lives.
This week is National Nurses Week, which ends each year on May 12. May 12 was the birthday of Florence Nightingale, revered as the pioneer of modern nursing.
"Nightingale was born in Florence, Italy, on May 12, 1820. During the Crimean War, she and a team of nurses improved the unsanitary conditions at a British base hospital, reducing the death count by two-thirds. Her writings sparked worldwide health care reform. In 1860 she established St. Thomas’ Hospital and the Nightingale Training School for Nurses."      

At IndependenceFirst, we are very fortunate to have a team of nurses, staff and care workers who serve over 1,200 individuals with disabilities every day in their homes by providing personal care services. Each day our nurses bring dedication, perseverance, empathy and care to their work. And each day countless individuals are positively impacted through the work of their nurses and caregivers.
“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou
On behalf of all of the staff, consumers, care workers, Board and community, we thank our nurses for the work they do each and every day.
