State of Florida Issues Proclamation During Nurses Week

Congratulations to all Florida nurses who were honored last week with an official State of Florida proclamation during Nurses Week. Last Wednesday, the State's Chief Financial Officer, Jeff Atwater, presented the proclamation to Nemours Chief Nurse Executive, Barbara Meeks, during Wednesday's Florida Cabinet meeting which was held at Nemours Children's Hospital. 

"Over the past two years, I have had the privilege of interviewing dozens and dozens of nurses as we recruited the world-class team for the brand-new Nemours Children's Hospital in Orlando" said Meeks, who represents more than 300 Nemours pediatric nurses in Orlando, Jacksonville and Pensacola. "Many of the most impressive candidates were from Florida so I know we have great nurses in this state. What a great honor to accept this official proclamation on their behalf!"
