North-West College Celebrates National Nurses Week by Giving Back to Local Nurses
College Students Honor the Role Nurses Play in Providing Quality Health Care
From May 6 to 12, North-West College (NWC) and Glendale Career College (GCC) will observe National Nurses Week, marking the occasion by recognizing nurses serving the surrounding communities. As a way of expressing appreciation for the vital role nurses play on the front lines of the health care field, Massage Therapy students from North-West College's West Covina, Pasadena, and Pomona campuses will provide free massages to nurses working in local hospitals and clinics throughout the week.
"We are glad to be able to honor the nurses in our community and recognize everything they do to improve the health of their patients," shared Corporate Director of Facilities and Internal Compliance Shirley Powell. "These massages are just a small thank you to these nurses, but will hopefully offer a welcome break from their hard work."
In addition to offering massages, North-West College and Glendale Career College are partnering with several local health facilities to provide special items of recognition for their nurses, along with raffle prizes donated by NWC and GCC. Nurses Week also affords both Colleges a chance to share about their Nursing programs.
"We are excited to bring awareness to the all-important field of nursing and connect individuals interested in pursuing it as a career with our high quality training," Powell said.
North-West College and Glendale Career College are leaders in allied health education and have celebrated Nurses Week since it first began in 1990, when the American Nurses Association declared May 6–12 as a weeklong celebration of the profession. May 6 marks National RN Recognition Day with National Student Nurses Day falling just two days later, on May 8.
"Each year, North-West College and Glendale Career College are proud to be part of continuing this tradition of honoring these everyday heroes in our communities," Powell explained.
