U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature For May 6
WASHINGTON, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
MONDAY, MAY 6: CAREGIVING
Profile America — Monday, May 6th. This is National Nurses Day — kicking off a week honoring the outstanding efforts of nurses in helping to keep Americans healthy. The observance ends next Saturday, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, who established the world's first nursing school in England in the 19th century. In the U.S., there were some 12,000 registered nurses by 1900. Today, that figure is over 2.6 million. As their numbers have grown, so have nurses' responsibilities, keeping up with increasingly complex medical technology. They not only work in the nation's nearly 6,500 hospitals but are on duty in more than 76,000 nursing homes and residential care facilities across the country.
