Memorial Hospital honors dedicated workers during National Nurses Week

Ask anyone in the healthcare industry, and they'll tell you it is constantly evolving.  Nurses are playing a big part in keeping up with those changes.  This week is National Nurses Week.  Memorial Hospital is celebrating with the Annual Spirit of Nursing Awards.  The awards go to those who've given amazing care to patients.

The nurses on hand at a nursing fair Wednesday say it's a rewarding career.  "It takes a lot of hard work, dedication and heart to do this type of work," says Registered Nurse Alice Blakesley.

According to the Associated Press a shortage of registered nurses is expected to worsen over the next seven years.
