This National Nurses Week, we invite you to celebrate the significant contributions of our nation’s nurses who serve daily on the front lines caring for those in need. Did you know that for 17 consecutive years, the American public ranked nurses the most trusted professionals? Our programs are certainly doing their part:
- Nearly 29,000 nurses practice at HRSA-funded health centers in rural, urban, and underserved areas and handle more than 28 million patient visits each year.
- More than 5,200 National Health Service Corps and Nurse Corps nurses provide care to approximately 5.5 million Americans.
