Celebrating Difference Makers This Nurses Week

5 Minute Read


Nurses are the heartbeat of healthcare. From monitoring vital signs to administering medications, they meticulously assess patients, detect subtle changes, and intervene promptly. But they also help beyond medical needs, connecting on a human level as they hold hands, wipe tears, and offer words of comfort to patients.

For Nurses Week 2024, we asked those who have been helped or inspired by nurses to take the time to recognize them as a difference maker. The nominations speak to the nurses who make a difference in the lives of patients, families, and communities daily.

Nurses Week 2024 Stories


Marisa is one of the most caring hardworking women I know! She is a mother of two, and although she would love to be with them full-time, she is passionate about her job and her patients and what she does. When she told me she was going to be a nurse back in high school, it made perfect sense because she loves deeply and has always had such a nurturing spirit. She is an incredible nurse and truly gives her all in all she does!

For as long as I can remember, my best friend Sydney has wanted to be a nurse. Yesterday, she had her last day of nursing school, and next Saturday, she graduates! She’s worked so hard and is one step closer to her dream. As a person representing the next generation of nurses, I know she’s the girl for the job. I’m so proud of her and am in constant admiration of all the hard work put in by nurses every day.
