Nurses Walk set for May 10 at Irvine Park


Nurses from HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals will celebrate National Nurses Week by participating in a Nurses Walk on May 10 at 6 p.m. at Irvine Park.

The walk is free and open to the public, but walkers will need to register at the park once they arrive. Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m., and the walk will begin at 6 p.m. Families and dogs with leashes are also welcome.

The walk is intended to highlight the nursing profession’s commitment to illness prevention and wellness. National Nurses Week is May 6 to 12. Held annually during the week of Florence Nightingale’s birthday in 1820, National Nurses Week was founded by the American Nurses Association to celebrate the critical work that nurses provide to improve health care delivery around the world.
