Letter to the Editor 4-29-14

Dear Editor,
 On May 6, the American Nurses Association and Cloud County Health Center are sponsoring National Nurses Week, which is held every year during May 6-12. The purpose of National Nurses Week is to raise public awareness of the value of nursing and to help educate the public about the vital roles Registered Nurses play in meeting the health care needs of the American people.
 To celebrate National Nurses Week, Cloud County Health Center would like to pay tribute to the number of registered nurses in the nation (nearly 3.1 million), or in your state, or other registered nurses who provide highly skilled, safe and quality care in a variety of settings, and who encounter increased challenges to their professional and ethical commitment to deliver essential health care.
 Cloud County Health Center is soliciting stories that pay tribute to these registered nurses. Perhaps, for example, an individual may want to thank the registered nurse who cared for him/her or his/her family member; or perhaps a registered nurse was involved in saving a particular individual's life and the individual would like to show his/her gratitude. Cloud County Health Center would like to hear from your readers and we ask that your newspaper print these testimonials during May 6-12.
 Please help us recognize our area's registered nurses and give an individual the opportunity to share his/her story and pay tribute to a particular registered nurse or to all indispensable registered nurses on this special day.
All stories can be sent to:       
Cloud County Health Center
1100 Highland Drive
Concordia, Ks  66901
Thank you.

                                                Sincerely,
                                                LeRoy Dickinson  Director/Public Relations
