National Nurses Week kicks off

By  | 

ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) - In the Surgery Holding room is where you'll find nurses working 8 hour days prepping patients for surgery then getting them ready to head home.

It's a passion for nurses like Jill Hector, who's been working at Mercy for three and a half years.

Hector graduated from East Central University and plans on going back to school in the future to become a nurse practitioner.

Hector says she couldn't do it all without the support and help of her coworkers.

"We all work very hard together as a team to get the job done to take care of our patients," Hector said. "Patient safety is our number one priority and I think everybody has that in common."

Nurses week runs until Saturday.
