May 6 – 12 is National Nurses Week, a time to celebrate the nurses who advance the health and safety of our community.

Every year, National Nurses Week takes place during the week of Florence Nightingale’s birthday to celebrate the health care professionals who embody Nightingale’s tireless efforts to better patients’ lives.

Nightingale’s efforts laid the groundwork for modern nursing, and today, nurses represent the backbone of Hansford County Hospital District. From performing routine blood draws to managing emergencies, nurses perform their duties with excellence and poise, each and every day.

Nurses’ array of essential care duties cross a variety of medical disciplines, and a strong nursing team is crucial for the success of any health care organization. Beyond providing care, nurses spend a significant amount of time educating and supporting patients and their families who trust Hansford County Hospital District for their care.

From primary care to long-term care at Hansford Manor, our nurses are an essential part of our mission to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and families in our community.
