    FORT POLK, La. — Military and civilian nurses serve leading roles to maintain military health and readiness and affect transformative changes occurring in military medicine now and in the future. At Bayne-Jones Army Community Hospital nurses will celebrate Nurses Week 2021 with a variety of activities promoting this year’s theme of unified, ready and reliable.

    Nurses Week kicked off with a proclamation signing in Deridder on May 6. Nurses from BJACH joined colleagues from Beauregard Health System for the presentation from Mayor Misty Clanton.

    Clanton proclaimed May 6-12 National Nurses Week in honor of the tireless commitment nurses give to the health and welfare of the community.

    “Nurses spend their careers treating and comforting the sick, welcoming new lives into our world and caring for people at the end of their lives,” she said. “Nurses are tasked with the difficult duty of healing and giving hope while constantly learning and adapting to new techniques, medicines
    and concepts in the ever-evolving healthcare world.”

    Amelia Ross, a registered nurse who works in the BJACH operating room, said honoring nurses reminded her of the people she takes care of on a daily basis who appreciate the care she provides.

    “It’s good to know we have support from our community,” she said. “It’s comforting to know there are people in Deridder we can rely on if we need to reach out for anything. It’s always great to see other nurses
    standing up for what we believe in.”

    BJACH celebrates nurses week with a variety of activities that emphasize this year’s theme. Military nurses protect, promote, and improve health care and military readiness in support of operational objectives.
