Recognizing nurses on National Nurses Week

Today is the beginning of National Nurses Week, which is celebrated annually from May 6-12. This recognition week honors nurses and their contributions to health care and society.

Our mission here at Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College is to prepare students to become great nurses. But we have to get them here first.

Adventures in air travel
