Why nursing?

Our original intent was to post profiles of nurses on our website during National Nurses Week.

We have received so many responses that we were not able to post all of them this week. Therefore, we will continue to post nurses’ profiles here and will highlight these amazing stories.

If you have a story to share, contact us to set up a time to talk.

In the meantime, we want to send our appreciation to all of you who provide nursing care in it all its forms; to a diverse population; in countless locations and settings throughout the state.

Your efforts make a difference, every day, in the health and well-being of the citizens of Michigan.

Congratulations and Thank You!
