Nurses Week 2021 For Nurse Leaders: The first time I heard the term “Standing in the Gap” I was listening to one of my favorite pastors. It was a new phrase to me. And as I ponder National Nurse’s Week 2021 through the lens of Nurse Leaders this phrase keeps reverberating in my mind. Standing in the gap means interceding on someone’s behalf. Nurse Leaders define standing in the gap perfectly and especially this past year. So, with the intention in advance of the week nationally designated to recognize the contributions of nurses I want to specially recognize those who lead each nurse. While you are recognizing others in the coming weeks, I recognize each Nurse Leader who Stands Up, Stands Out, and Stands in The Gap for our nurses and the patients and families they serve.
This Nurses Week 2021:
You are a Nurse Leader.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I continue to be in awe of you, inspired by you, and thankful for you and all that you do.
Happy National Nurses Week 2021
