Nurses are very smart and work hard. Nurses go to college to learn how the human body works and how to take care of it.
Nurses work along with Doctors and other health care professionals. Nurses are important because they care if you are living healthy.
If you know a nurse: Ask to take a picture together with them at work, send or email the picture to us so we can put their picture here. Have them write down what they do as a nurse to care for their patients and send it with the picture.
Future Caring Nurses: If you think you might like to be a nurse someday, dress-up like a nurse and send us your picture.
