Nurses Week

We’re celebrating our awesome nurses during Nurses Week!

It’s Nurses Week and we’re celebrating all the excellent nurses at UK HealthCare who care for our patients every day.

UK HealthCare has more than 4,000 nursing service employees, including more than 2,000 full-time registered nurses. They are the best at what they do and play a vital role in enhancing our patients’ healing process. Through patient care, education and research, our nurses are instrumental in providing the world-class care available at UK HealthCare.

In fact, UK HealthCare is part of an elite group of hospitals that has achieved Magnet status – the gold standard for nursing excellence. Out of nearly 6,000 healthcare organizations in the United States, fewer than 7 percent have achieved Magnet designation.

Kudos to our nurses for being so awesome!
