Nurses Honored At Hospital Ceremony

This is national Nurses' Week and one local hospital is doing all they can to show their appreciation. Monday dozens of nurses at Good Shepherd Medical Center re-took the Florence Nightingale Pledge, named after the woman pioneer of nursing. It was all part of larger ceremony, honoring the nurses and including a blessing of their hands.  

Gina Terry, a Registered Nurse, says,"it's neat just going back to think about the whole history of nursing and why we became caregivers in the first place. I've been a nurse for going on 18 years and it takes I guess someone special to want to give care to those in need and that's what nursing means to me."

Tuesday, the hospital is hosting a reception for local area nurses.
