They extend dignity at the bedside. They inspire. They save lives. They’re helping transform health care for the betterment of society. Nurses have long gone about compassionate and critical work, all without fanfare. So it is with pride that Regis salutes nurses by asking students and faculty what makes nurses heroes. How would you answer the question?

“I think nurses are heroes because they have the minds of doctors, but the hearts of mothers.” -- Cat Steinbach-Payne, student, Traditional BSN Program

“They're able to be selfless. They have the compassion and willingness to make their patients a priority.” -- Gustavo Hernandez, student, Accelerated BSN Program

“They are experts at finessing science and art, taking skills and combining them with compassion to offer excellent care.” – Terry Lee, faculty, Accelerated BSN Program and RN to BSN Program

“They have the knowledge and heart to advocate for others, the courage to stand up for what they believe in, and the passion to promote wellness and healing in all that they do.” – Courtney Duggan, faculty, Family Nurse Practitioner Program

“Nurses are able to sit with, care for and just be with patients and families through some of the most trying situations in life.” – Katelyn Blair, student, Accelerated BSN Program
