Nurses make up the majority of hospital staff and are an integral part of every patient’s care. University of Toledo Health will be celebrating its nurses with activities during National Nurses Week, May 9-13.

“Our nurses here at UTMC do an amazing job day in and day out taking care of our patients, and we need to celebrate them,” said UT Health Chief Nursing Officer Monecca Smith. “And Nurses Week is a great week to do that.”
