Congresswoman Waters Celebrates National Nurses Week 

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) issued a statement honoring nurses in California’s 43rd Congressional District and across the country in recognition of National Nurses Week 2019, which was created in 1993 by the American Nurses Association to celebrate and elevate the nursing profession:

“Happy National Nurses week to all of the phenomenal nurses in California’s 43rd District and the four million more across the country. Nurses are the unsung heroes of the health industry, providing the highest quality of care to their patients in communities around the world. In recognition of the lifesaving and tireless efforts of the women and men who make up the nursing profession, it is imperative that we support policies that increase pay for nurses and make nursing education more accessible and affordable for those who are interested in nursing careers. This week, and every week, let us continue to show our sincere gratitude and appreciation to all of our nurses, who are truly superb in their specialty areas, tender in the care that they provide, and deserving of our utmost respect.”
