Recognizing National Nurses Week

May 8, 2024

As National Nurses Week approaches, we at Metro Geriatrics take a moment to express our gratitude and appreciation for our exceptional nursing team. These dedicated professionals are at the heart of our mission to provide compassionate, high-quality care to seniors in our community. This week is all about them—their commitment, their passion, and their impact.

The Vital Role of Geriatric Nurses

Geriatric nursing is more than just a profession; it’s a calling. Our nurses specialize in caring for older adults, understanding the unique challenges and needs that come with aging. They blend clinical expertise with an empathetic approach, ensuring that every senior receives personalized care that respects their dignity and independence.


At Metro Geriatrics, our nurses are trained to address a variety of health issues prevalent among older adults, from managing chronic conditions to providing post-operative care. Their comprehensive approach helps reduce hospital readmissions and supports seniors in maintaining the highest possible quality of life.

A Week of Well-Deserved Recognition

National Nurses Week is an opportunity to put the spotlight on nurses and their critical role in healthcare. This week-long celebration begins on May 6th and concludes on May 12th, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. It’s a time for healthcare organizations, patients, and communities to show their appreciation for nurses and acknowledge their daily contributions.

Join Us in Saying Thank You

We encourage everyone in our community to join us in celebrating these incredible professionals. Whether it’s through a simple thank-you message, sharing a story about a nurse who made a difference, or participating in community events, every gesture counts.

At Metro Geriatrics, we recognize that our nurses are essential to the health and well-being of the seniors we serve. National Nurses Week is just one of the many ways we show our appreciation, but our gratitude extends year-round. To all nurses, especially those who serve with us at Metro Geriatrics, thank you for your service, your care, and your passion.
