National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6 – 12, but this year, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s especially important to recognize our nurses for the care they provide patients and their contributions to the mission of Baylor College of Medicine.
Every month we focus on an outstanding staff member of the BCM Family. This month, in honor of National Nurses Week, May 6 – 12, it’s Jennifer Cabrera with the Department of Medicine.
Ten years ago, Allison Carter was a medical assistant at Baylor, exploring the inclination she had that she wanted to go into nursing. Today, she is being recognized as one of the city’s top nurses through the Houston Chronicle’s Salute to Nurses awards program.
A group of nurses at Baylor College of Medicine recently stepped up to rescue the Basic Life Support certification program offered here, and in doing so, they’re teaching others the skills they need to save lives.
