International Nurses Day

Nurses are a huge component of what makes FIMRC's work possible, and so we wanted to celebrate their impact for National Nurses Day! Nurses are employed at many FIMRC sites, supporting both clinical and health education programming. They often run several of the programs on site, and we couldn't keep it together without them! Their efforts do not go unnoticed, and below we've highlighted the differences and similarities between two nurses that work in different corners of our FIMRC world.
