Nursing Matters: November Updates

Now that the Thanksgiving holiday is almost upon us, I am excited for the holiday season to begin. I have so much to be thankful for this year. While I am thankful for my family, I’m also thankful for my Hopkins family--the people I’ve had the opportunity to work with, and the patients we serve are what keep me coming back. I’m truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with nursing HEROs like yourselves each and every day. Thank you for everything you do! Happy Thanksgiving!
