It's National Nursing Week in Canada and today (May 12) marks International Nurses Day.
While we recognize the efforts and compassion of the dedicated nurses around this time each year, it has never been so significant than right now.
For the past few weeks, Sudbury.com has been spotlighting various essential workers from our community in a new daily feature called Essential Worker of the Day.
We've received more than 100 nominations so far, which have included fast food employees, personal support workers, pharmacy assistants and hydro workers, just to name a few. But a large number of the nominations we received are for nurses who continue to work hard to serve our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today, on International Nurses Day, Sudbury.com would like to celebrate all nurses for their remarkable service.
To show our gratitude we have made a photo gallery including the names and faces of just a fraction of the nurses who are working tirelessly to help keep our community safe.
Thank you all for being on the frontlines on our behalf.
