On May 11, Park­west held its Nurses Week reception to recognize nurses who go above and be­yond in their mission to provide excellent care to each patient. This annual celebra­tion is held in honor of National Nurses Week, an observation supported by the American Nurses Associa­tion to coincide with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. This year, Na­tional Nurses Week was May 6-12.
