Earlier in the week, I asked you to give a shout out to a nurse you know. I was not expecting what followed.

Let me be clear that everyone in the healthcare field deserves our neverending thank yous. This time around I wanted to shine the spotlight on nurses working hard during this pandemic.

My Dad spent his career running hospitals like Pt. Pleasant (when it existed,) Brick, and St. Peters. He always said that "nurses run the hospital."

While it's no surprise that the love came pouring in for our nurses, I never thought that we'd get over 800 comments on Facebook between 94.3 The Point and Monmouth County News.

The least you can do is scroll through the tributes to the amazing people who help keep us well, and are putting themselves in harm's way so we are healthy.

Nurses everywhere - from the bottom of my heart, and our hearts, thank you.

If there's a nurse you would like to give a shout out to, leave their name and where they work in the comments below.
