St John’s Celebrates National Nurses Week
St. John’s marked National Nurses Week (May 6-12, 2018) with a series of celebrations to honor nurses and certified nursing assistants. The weeklong celebration included a special luncheon for the retired nurses living at St. John’s Home. This inaugural event honored the nursing careers of over 20 residents.
“Once a nurse, always a nurse,” says Diane Bogaczak, director of nursing at St. John’s, who helped plan the weeklong festivities, including the May 11 luncheon. “It’s just like the marines. There is no such thing as being a former nurse.”
