But they might not realize that nurses also are leaders in improving the quality of care and expanding access to care. That’s why May 6-12 is celebrated as National Nurses Week, an annual opportunity for communities to recognize the full range of nurses’ contributions.

Forty-five years ago, Saidi Eckert arrived in Canton with little money and no job. She says she wanted to follow God’s will for her life and was asking Him for direction. God answered her prayer.

Saidi says she heard God say, “Follow me. You see that building over there, which says Mercy? You go there. They have mercy and will tend to you. You stay there until I come back for you.” Saidi smiles when she says, “God never came back so I am still here.”
