The Lippincott Solutions 2017 Inspired Nurses: The Heroes of Healthcare calendar shares touching stories from the experiences of real nurses who are dedicated to healing. The stories showcased in the calendar are only a small representation of the hard work put in by nurses everywhere, and have been submitted by nurses in our community -- their experience ranging from recent graduates to seasoned veterans. The calendar was designed with the idea of providing a constant reminder of how critical nursing is to healthcare by highlighting some of the moments that make all the hard work worth it for the millions of truly inspired nurses and the patients they help every day. This calendar was created by the inspired team at Lippincott Solutions. We hope these stories will be a constant source of inspiration and reminder of just what it means to be a nurse.
