AdventHealth Gordon is celebrating National Nurses Week from May 6 to May 12 to show appreciation for AdventHealth Gordon nurses and the invaluable contributions they make in health care every day.

To honor the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth, the World Health Organization declared 2020 as the “International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.” Therefore, this year’s National Nurses Week theme is “Year of the Nurse.”

“Over the last few months, our nurses have shown great compassion, resiliency and dedication in providing our community with the care it has needed,” said Karen Steely, interim president and chief operating officer of AdventHealth Gordon. “We are so proud of them and thank them for their service.”

AdventHealth thanked nurses across the organization with a system-wide prayer video featuring Amy Jordon, chief nursing officer of AdventHealth Gordon, AdventHealth Murray and the AdventHealth Southeast region.

“Our nurses at AdventHealth Gordon and AdventHealth Murray are truly exceptional, and it’s an honor to represent them across the system,” said Jordon. “I began my nursing career here, and I can’t imagine being anywhere else.”
