Commanding General honors nurses for their compassion, professionalism during National Nurses’ Week.

By Brig. Gen Michael Place

During National Nurses Week, May 6-12, we celebrate the compassion and courage of our Army nurses, both uniformed and civilian, around the Region. This is particularly poignant as they are now on the front lines fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and continuing to provide all aspects of medical care while ensuring the readiness of the force and health of all beneficiaries.

CSM Hough and I are enormously proud of the compassionate care our nurses continue to provide and the unwavering support they display to their patients and colleagues during this global crisis.  Great care starts with great nurses – they are the heart of the care we provide.

From the treatment rooms to the operating rooms, Army nurses improve the organization through their professionalism, determination and concern for their patients and staff. Our beneficiaries routinely praise the quality of our nurses, whether it’s in a medical facility or on the battlefield.

Throughout the Army’s history, our mission has evolved, yet there has been one constant – the devotion of the Army Nurse in providing excellent care. We want to thank each of you for your contributions to Army Medicine and devotion to great care.
