National Nurses Month Celebrates Dedication of Health Care’s Unsung Heroes

PHOENIX (May 21, 2024) The nation’s vital health care system is dependent and reliant on the highly-trained skills of capable, committed and passionate nurses. Nurses provide invaluable care to their patients, take and monitor essential vital signs, help patients understand procedures and medications, and advocate for patients in need of immediate care.

For National Nurses Month, it is important to recognize that our nation’s nurses help ensure patients’ voices are heard and that they receive the care they need when ill or injured. Veterans and other military-connected individuals should be aware that thousands of committed nurses work on their behalf to deliver high-quality and compassionate care they deserve.

TriWest Healthcare Alliance (TriWest) is proud to celebrate the nation’s nurses for their dedication and passion in caring for Veterans and military-connected individuals. We appreciate, value and respect the integral role they play in our health care system.

To spotlight the important work and contributions of the nation’s nurses, two TriWest nurses shared their stories and experiences. They serve in different roles, but both possess the same commitment and passion for their patients.

For National Nurses Month, celebrate these two dedicated and passionate nurses in this new Healthy Homefront® feature article.
