Nurses Week with the theme being "Delivering Quality and Innovation in

WHEREAS, In honor of the dedication, commitment and tireless effort of
the nearly 3.1 million registered nurses nationwide to promote and main-
tain the health of the Nation, this Legislative Body is justly proud to
recognize the registered nurses of the State of New York, and to urge
all its citizens to support National Nurses Day and National Nurses
Week; and
WHEREAS, It is most appropriate that this great Empire State recog-
nizes the worthy and beneficial purposes of celebrating both National
Nurses Day and National Nurses Week; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to call attention to
events that serve to bring people together for the united purpose of
actively pursuing improvements in their communities; now, therefore, be
it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the observance of May 6, 2013, as National Nurses Day, and
May 6-12, 2013, as National Nurses Week, in the State of New York; and
