National Nurses Week

Thank you, nurses.

Every spring, we pause for a moment to celebrate National Nurses Week by expressing our admiration and gratitude for nurses everywhere. Nurses redefine care and empathy on a daily basis. They know that health care isn’t only about healing the body, but also extending a hand to reassure, an ear to listen, a voice to advocate and a heart to connect. Nurses make the world a better place, one patient at a time. We invite you to join us in offering a heartfelt “thank you” to all nurses, as we celebrate them and their invaluable service as the heart of health care.

Nominate an exceptional nurse of the year.

Do you know an exceptionally dedicated, knowledgeable and skilled nursing student or faculty member? Nominate them to apply for the 2022 DAISY Award! 

Regis Nurse Stories

Jordan Wallin

"My experience at Regis in the BSN program was nothing short of excellent. The amazing professors, competitive clinical placement and vast volunteer opportunities opened many doors for me as a new grad nurse. Now, 3 years into practice I appreciate my education at Regis for the experiences it gave me and the values that I learned, and carry to this day."

"My wife Julie ended up at St. Joseph's yesterday to have an emergency appendectomy. (Went well and she's home today.) When I got to the hospital today I was wearing my Regis mask. Turns out that the staff member at the front door screening people was Joslyn Salas (a current Regis junior studying education) and two of Julie's nurses are Regis grads. Here's a photo of them in Julie's room. Their names are Lucy Williams (she is married to a Regis grad as well - baseball player at Regis and a Business major) and Amanda Peterson. They are both 2017 graduates of our nursing program."
