LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – U.S. Sen. John Boozman (R-AR) is honoring nurses in the Natural State.
On Friday, he recognized 34 nurses at the Veterans Hospital as part of the 2019 Great Nurses Celebration of Arkansas.
He emphasized the importance of taking care of veterans in our country, as Congress commits to provide excellent care to those who have served our country.
This year, the Arkansas VA set a new record, honoring 34 nurses of the 100 who are chosen every year.
“It’s a great testimony to nurses at the VA and the tremendous work that they do individually and to the institution,” says Sen. Boozman.
The award is based on empathy for patients, achievement and mentorship.
