Supporting our nurses

This week is National Nurses Week, a week when we give special recognition to the immeasurable contributions nurses have made to our health care system and our lives. We put our trust in nurses to take care of us when we're sick and guide us through a complicated health care system. Nurses work tirelessly to provide us with high quality care, often at the most vulnerable times in our lives. But beyond just thanking nurses during Nurses Week, we should make sure nurses are supported and appreciated every day.

Because the work of nurses is so important, I support workforce development for the profession — which is critical for current nurses and for the next generation — and I’ve introduced legislation to give nurses a meaningful voice in staffing decisions, improving care for patients, and safety and working conditions on the job.

Join me in supporting America's nurses and the lifesaving work they do in our communities.

Thank you for standing with me, and with nurses,
