Wednesday, May 6 was National Nurse’s Day and Tuesday, May 12 is International Nurse’s Day. During this week when we recognize the dedication, sacrifice, and skills of nurses worldwide, I wanted to take a moment to offer profound thanks to those from the nursing community, including the faculty, staff, and students in our Department of Nursing, for all they do in service to others, particularly during this global pandemic. These dedicated servant-leaders are putting their own lives at risk in service to others, often at the expense of their own health. We are fortunate to have a strong Nursing program at CSI that has trained so many of the nursing professionals on the Island, and continues to train the nurses of the future. 

Stay well, and as you do, thank a nurse.
