Nassau County Executive Mangano Salutes Nurses In Honor Of National Nurses Week May 6th - 12th

In honor of National Nurses Week, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and the Nassau County Department of Health would like thank all the dedicated nurses throughout Nassau County who work every day to protect and promote the health of our residents.

Annually, National Nurses Week begins on May 6th and ends on May 12th, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of Nursing as a modern profession. This week is set aside each year to highlight the diverse ways in which nurses, who compromise the largest health care profession, work to improve health care.

“In celebration of National Nurses Week, I would like to acknowledge and thank all the dedicated nurses throughout Nassau County who provide invaluable services which protect the health and safety of our residents,” said County Executive Mangano.

“I would like to thank and congratulate all the nurses in Nassau County,” said Commissioner of Health Lawrence Eisenstein, M.D. “I especially want to recognize all of the nurses at the Nassau County Department of Health for their commitment and efforts to promote and maintain the health of our residents.”

“Please join me during this special week in recognizing nurses everywhere for the care and compassion that they provide all year to make a difference in our lives,” said Mangano.
