Deb Zimmermann, CEO, The DAISY Foundation

There’s no question that nursing is a demanding profession. Caring for very ill patients and staffing challenges takes its toll and often leads to compassion fatigue.  One way to reinvigorate hardworking nurses is to show gratitude for their never-ending dedication to their patients.
