Who would you say is Western Colorado's most skilled, caring, and dedicated nurse? Saturday, May 6, is National Nurses Day. Give back the love and tell us about your favorite Western Colorado nurse.

This "holiday" is by no means new. Its origins go back to 1953. Saturday also kicks off National Nurses Week which runs through May 12. National Nurses Week is an opportunity to show your appreciation for their ceaseless care and expertise.

Throughout the week, nurses in specialized areas of the profession have their own specific days. Wednesday marks "National School Nurses Day." May 12 is International Nurses Day. Why May 12? That's Florence Nightingale's birthday.

If you or someone you know has spent quality time in the hospital, you've no doubt developed an appreciation for their work. Let them know their dedication hasn't gone unnoticed.

This is, of course, just for fun. Give a shout out to your favorite Western Colorado nurse. This poll is conducted purely by write-in nominations. There's no such thing as the first or last place, and no prizes will be awarded.
