During this National Nurses Week, I would like to offer a long overdue thank you to our nurses – the most trusted profession and unsung heroes of health care. As a physician leader, I have had the privilege of working alongside many nurses throughout my career, and I have witnessed firsthand the invaluable contributions and capable partnership that they bring to health care and in shaping the education of young doctors.
