Nurses honored

CLINTON — Mercy Medical Center will recognize and celebrate National Nurses Week this week.

This year, the American Nurses Association has selected “Delivering Quality and Innovations in Patient Care” as the theme for 2013.

Annually, National Nurses Week begins on May 6, marked as RN Recognition Day, and ends on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of nursing as a modern profession. During this week, Mercy Medical Center will honor registered nurses in various ways recognizing the caring and compassionate work they do.

The Daisy award will be presented during this week. Also, the Iowa 100 Great Nurses award recipients, Sharon Bormann and Angela Mullaley, will be recognized. The Clinical Advancement Program and Scholarship recipients will be recognized and nurses will have the opportunity to present research projects they have engaged in throughout the year.

Mercy nurses also nominate and choose a member of the non-nursing staff as a “Friend of Nursing” and a physician for the “Distinguished Physician Award.”
