NMRTC Bremerton recognizes National Nurse Week/Navy Nurse Corps Birthday

image of nurse Amy Salzieder, with the statement "Nurses care for people, not just treat a person. In doing so, we receive the satisfaction of knowing that we have made a difference to patients and their families." Ask a Nurse...It's National Nurses Week, celebrated annually May 6 to May 12, and fittingly wrapping up on the birthday of Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), the founder of modern nursing. Immediately following the week is the Navy Nurse Corps birthday on May 13, recognizing 112 years of delivering patient-centered care from bed side to battle field.

Then, as now, caring for the sick and injured, establishing sanitary methods, supporting operational readiness during the Crimean War (1853-56) are legacies established as nursing standards by Nightingale and notable commitment by the Nurse Corps against the pandemic outbreak.

Amy Salzsieder and the other 60 Nurse Corps and 80 civilian nurses at Navy Medicine Readiness and Training Command (NMRTC) Bremerton have been tasked with proactively handling multiple assignment to screen, triage, and test for COVID-19, as well as continue daily needed support for acute-care patients.
