The Hospitals of Providence celebrate Nurses’ Week

Positively El Paso

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – As the nation celebrates National Nurses’ Week, the Hospitals of Providence are also doing their best to recognize the hard work of the nurses that help take care of El Pasoans on a daily basis.

The hospital is hosting parties for nurses at each of their campuses. There are games, plenty of food, drinks, and prizes, they even had a cotton candy machine.

National Nurses week continues through May 12, which is the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. One nurse said the job can be stressful, but it’s also very rewarding.

“I love what I do,” Norma Yee, emergency room nurse said. “Ever since I was a little kid I knew I wanted to take care of people and contribute to the community to my family. And to me getting recognized like this it’s a small moment that I can own, that this is what I do, I love what I do and I just wanna spread the cheer.”

Just like teachers, nurses can get several discounts and freebies at restaurants and stores this week.
