Celebrate Nurses Week with Scripps

A Perfect Time to Thank Your Scripps Nurse

Each May, National Nurses Week is celebrated across the U.S. to recognize the extraordinary role that nurses play in our lives. Chances are, whether in the hospital, clinic or doctor’s office, there’s a special nurse or two who made the difference in your life. Tell your Scripps nurses how much you appreciate the knowledge, skills and compassion they bring to your care.

Our Nurses Week Challenge

There are more than 4,300 Scripps nurses who care for patients 24/7 at our five hospitals, 27 outpatient clinics and numerous home-care settings. While the quality of their care is immeasurable, the statistics are undeniable.

This year, our goal is to raise $30,000 to match the number of steps walked by each Scripps nurse during Nurses Week.
