Doctors are given all the credit for health care however, it is up to the nurse to make sure the doctor has not made a mistake. Obviously an operating room nurse is very, very important. The day was created by Governor Terry Branstad in 1989, then governor of Iowa. I have known a lot of really great nurses, some from the operating room, others that serve the recovery time and those that assist doctors. A nurse is also the connection from the individual to the doctor since nurses generally deal daily with the patient. This does not mean the doctor doesn’t care, they may deal with dozens of people where the nurse normally deals with the individual. So let’s recognize the nurse, we can praise the doctor, but the nurse is the backbone of the health industry.
How to celebrate – Thank any nurse you happen to know. Study to become a nurse. Read about the history of the nurse.
