Granville Health System Celebrates Emergency Nurses Week
Granville Health System (GHS) recently celebrated Emergency Nurses Week, held October 10-16. Each year, the Emergency Nurses Association honors emergency nurses in the United States and around the world for their dedication. This year’s theme, "Emergency Nurses…Making a difference every day,” embodies the compassion, skills and commitment of these nurses.
Since 1989, the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) has celebrated the second Wednesday in October as Emergency Nurses Day, a day set aside to honor emergency nurses for their commitment to patient care. Starting in 2001, ENA expanded the celebration to devote an entire week to honoring emergency nurses, because one day was not enough to recognize all the contributions made by emergency nurses.
