Nurses Week 2013
Between May 6 and 12 of each year, we celebrate the Nurses Week across the globe. This period is a time to honor the more than 25 million nurses including close to 1 million Filipino nurses who make a difference in the lives of people every day. This is a special week that we must actively celebrate the extraordinary people that devote their lives to the health of others.
I wish I could personally thank every nurse who has gone out of her/his way for patients and their families, or taken that extra few minutes to offer comfort and support.
That would be quite a task, though, since all nurses do those things on a daily basis—often without even realizing it. That's the nature of nursing. That's the DNA of nursing!
In appreciating my nursing colleagues. It would be appropriate to quote, Thomas Jenkins. Jr: “Because of their patience and courageous leadership, the relationships they build and the support they deliver, the lives of vulnerable families are set upon a new trajectory of strength, self-sufficiency, and hope for a brighter future."
Happy Nurses’ Week. I am constantly in awe of your good care! Join me in the celebration of who you are and what you do each and every day.
Prof. Faustino Jerome Babate
