Livingston County celebrates National Nurses Week

Livingston County is honoring the hard work and sacrifice of County nursing staff during National Nurses Week.

The Livingston County Department of Health will host a breakfast celebrating County nurses on May 11. The County employs nurses throughout many of its departments who operate dozens of healthcare programs, including WIC, Early Intervention, and resident care at the Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation. Nurses play an integral role in maintaining public health and safety, said Livingston County Public Health Director Jennifer Rodriguez.

“Nurses are among the hardest working people in the medical field, especially right now,” she said. “I encourage the County to join with me in honoring our nursing professionals and applauding their unwavering commitment to serving our community. Please thank a nurse for all they do during this year’s National Nurses Week.”

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6, National Nurses Day, and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
