Nurses are at the core of every positive care experience, and there’s a reason why. They’re at the frontlines of it all, from the most complex surgeries to the quickest follow-up visits. Nurses are there to help you celebrate new life coming into the world, support you through a new diagnosis and treatment, help you manage ongoing illness and comfort families dealing with loss. Whether your stay lasts 30 minutes or a month, they help keep you as healthy and happy as possible—all while making you feel special. More than expert health care professionals, nurses are flawless communicators, savvy navigators, thoughtful advocates, and even top-flight playmates (for those younger patients).
