Nurses Week 2015: Nurses are Superheroes

Today marks the start of Nurses Week so here at Intel we want to celebrate, with you, what we consider to be the real superheroes of healthcare by saying #ThankYouNurses. Throughout the next seven days we’ll be bringing you some fantastic blogs which demonstrate our appreciation for nurses while highlighting how technology is helping to deliver best-ever patient care.

I want you to help us to say thank you to nurses across the world by tweeting your appreciation using the hashtag #ThankYouNurses throughout the week. If you have received some fantastic care from a nurse or want to highlight the work of a great colleague I’d love to help you say thanks by sharing your stories on Twitter – so tag a nurse, @intelhealth and say #ThankYouNurses with us.

As a nurse practitioner I’ve seen up close how technology is truly revolutionising nursing through enhanced mobility, whether that be having access to the latest medical records when visiting a patient at home or helping a patient to understand their condition better by displaying an injury on a tablet at the bedside in a hospital. 

We are also working with Microsoft in Health to highlight all that nurses do at www.microsoft.com/nurses so please check out some of the great nursing stories there too. Nurses Week ends on a high with International Nurses Day on May 12th so let’s keep the conversation going throughout the week.

I very much look forward to sharing our collective appreciation for nurses with you.
