Mercy Hospital Cassville celebrated National Nurses Week May 6 through May 12. "The nurses in our community are a diverse group, which include the hospital nurse, the long-term care nurse, the hospice nurse and so many more," said Nicki Gamet, Mercy Hospital Cassville chief nursing officer. "The nursing staff here at Mercy Hospital Cassville could not be successful without the input, support and commitment from the Cassville community. Nurses Week celebrates the work of 3.1 million registered nurses across the United States. Nursing is the country's largest healthcare profession. National Nurses Week reminds community members of the value of nursing and educates the public about the vital roles nurses play in meeting healthcare needs.
