I photograph a lot of nurses as a healthcare photographer. 2020 has shown all of us how essential nurses are. Nurses, techs, and CNA’s are the main faces that patients see in the hospital. They are not “just” a nurse, they are experts in care. They are on the front lines of healthcare.
National Nurse’s week ends today, and I wanted to take the time to recognize all of the nurses, techs, and CNA’s out there who are working hard to take care of everyone. It’s a hard job with long hours. It is definitely a calling, not just a job. They are here for us when we are born, and sadly when life ends. I appreciate all the nurses I know, whose who let me photograph them (even when their hair isn’t the best!), and those friends of mine who are nurses. If you know a nurse, consider sending them a card or a text, or giving them a call to let them know you appreciate them.
