It Truly Has Been a Year of the Nurse

By serendipity, the World Health Organization designated 2020 the Year of the Nurse, in honor of the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. As we all know, the year, whether designated or not, truly did prove to be the year of the nurse. As we celebrate National Nurses Week 2021, to honor the special nurses working in Community Health Centers across the nation, NACHC has released a new publication: 52 Weeks In The Life Of A Community Health Center Nurse. While every community health center nurse is unique, they all have one thing in common: to provide their patients with the highest level of care, regardless of the challenges in front of them. From persistence and resilience to courageousness and heroism, these 52 stories provide examples of the awe-inspiring nurses working in our FQHCs and honor and celebrate their contributions and commitment to their patients and community.
