Nation celebrates nurses this week
Amanda Gaither, registered nurse and X-ray technician, programs an intravenous pump in the emergency heart catheterization laboratory at EASTAR Health System. Gaither said it was the “awesome nurses” who
took care of her grandfather while he was going through chemotherapy who helped her decide to become a nurse. Though she’s only been a nurse for three months, she feels like she’s actually making a difference, Gaither said. National Nurses Week is May 6-12.
