Happy Nurses Week


As we approach National Nurses week - from May 6 through May 12- we see celebrations across the nation in every healthcare setting honoring nurses for their hard work, dedication and contributions. As I am not able to reach everyone in person, I want to take this opportunity to give a very special “thank you” to each and every member of our NAINA family: to the leadership team and all our members. The two words “thank you” may sound hollow and insufficient to really convey our sentiments and our heartfelt appreciation. They are simple words, but many times, neglecting to convey that appreciation may be detrimental for lasting relationships. I was fortunate to associate with many nurses who were my champions, who went above and beyond their call of duty in helping a coworker, comforting a grieving parent, listening to an elderly patient, sacrificing personal time to finish a project or building an organizational team, without expecting any rewards. These are the unsung heroes of nursing and I see many of them among our NAINA family. I do appreciate all that you do for nursing and for NAINA.


Mother Teresa’s famous quote, “DO IT ANYWAY” truly conveys lessons for all of us to live by. Let us reminiscence on our past, compare our lives to the words below and pledge to make those changes that we can. Those of us who can live by these words will be at peace with ourselves and with the people around us. Let us try and do it anyway.


 “People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered; forgive them anyway,

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives; Be kind anyway,

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and true enemies; succeed anyway,

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest anyway,

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway,

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; be happy anyway,

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway,

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;

Give the world the best you’ve got anyway. You see, in the final analysis,

it is between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway”
