WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson released the following statement after introducing the National Nurses Week Congressional Resolution:

“It is with great pride and joy that I introduce the bipartisan National Nurses Week Resolution in Congress in 2017,” said Congresswoman Johnson. “Every year, I introduce a resolution to celebrate the difficult and necessary work nurses do on an everyday basis during the week of May 6 through May 12.”

The National Nurses Week Resolution was introduced with ten original cosponsors:  Reps. David McKinley (R-WV), Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR), David Joyce (R-OH), Wm. Lacy Clay (D-MO), Barbara Comstock (R-VA), Terri Sewell (D-AL), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), Rodney David (R-IL), and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA).

Congresswoman Johnson added, “As a non-practicing registered nurse, I know firsthand how valuable nurses are to our nation’s healthcare system, and I know they often sacrifice without thanks or praise. The more than 3.6 million nurses in this country deserve our gratitude and our recognition.”
