Nurses Week in El Paso

Nurses Week in El Paso

Nurses from across the city of El Paso were honored at this past Tuesday’s City Council meeting when Mayor Oscar Leeser and City Council representatives proclaimed the week of May 6-12, 2014 as National Nurses Week in the City of El Paso. Several Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing faculty and students were on hand to celebrate this occasion. “We thank the City Council and Mayor Leeser for this public recognition of nurses,” said Jeanne Novotny, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N., founding dean of the TTUHSC Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing. “Nurses are the heroes of the healthcare system. The experiences and knowledge of nurses influences patient care, nursing science, and health policy.”
