The Kirkhof College of Nursing created a campaign designed for the public to thank nurses for their dedication, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, which launched in early May.

Electronic thank you cards are still available for people to print and write a message of support. The cards can be sent to nurses via email or U.S. mail, or posted on social media. National Nurses Week was May 6-12.

Cynthia McCurren, dean of KCON, said the goal of the campaign was to reach nurses in all sectors of health care, to “let them know they are heroes and deserve our deepest appreciation.”

“We know the coronavirus pandemic is challenging our colleagues in the nursing workforce like nothing has since World War II,” McCurren said. “We sought a creative way to let nurses know how much their knowledge, life-saving skills, compassion and courage means to our communities.”
