Celebrate Nursing Week 2017 – We Do!  Dr. Sher and CENTER FOR COUGH patients appreciate the difference our EXTRAORDINARY nurses make in patient care and patient experience. Featured below are just some of our talented and dedicated nursing team:  (from left to right, top to bottom:  Tiffanie, Bonnie, Amy, Leslie, Jess, Shaun, and Nurse Practitioner Lori).

National recognition of the tireless efforts of our nation’s nurses was a long time in the making.  In 1953, a proposal was sent to President Eisenhower to proclaim “Nurse Day” in October of the following year.  The proclamation was never made.  A bill for a “National Nurse Week” was introduced in the 1955 Congress, but no action was taken.  In 1972, another resolution was presented by the House of Representatives for the President to proclaim “National Registered Nurse Day;” again it did not occur.  Finally, in 1974 President Nixon issued a proclamation.  In 1982, the American Nurses Association Board of Directors formally acknowledged May 6, 1982 as “National Nurses Day.”  Now, National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
Dr. Sher is very fortunate that many of the nursing team members began their professional nursing career with him and are “growing up” alongside him.  Dr. Sher’s personal commitment to life-long learning and professional development are also hallmarks of the nursing team.  Professional societies, continuing education, and collegiality support a stimulating practice environment for our super-star nurses.
Thank You!
