Nursing week 2014 celebrates “Nurses Leading the Way”

May 6, 2014


Nearly 2,500 make up the nursing team at Texas Children’s. Representing the largest segment of our workforce, nurses play a significant role in almost every aspect of the patient and family-centered care we provide across the system. Each year, National Nurses Week is dedicated to these men and women who work tirelessly every day to ensure every patient and their family receives Texas Children’s quality care. This year, the theme of national Nurses Week is “Nurses Leading the Way.”

“This year’s theme is a perfect one for nursing at Texas Children’s,” said Chief Nursing Officer and Senior Vice President Lori Armstrong. “It is reflective of the role that nurses play across the organization in every clinical setting. Every nurse is a leader in the eyes of our patients and their families.”

As a tribute to the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, Nurses Week is celebrated from May 6 through May 12, Florence’s birthday. For the Texas Children’s nursing team, it’s a week of celebrations and a chance to all to say thank you to the nursing staff for their vast contributions across the organization.
