As the pandemic showed us, the nursing profession is one of the most essential and unsung professions. 

The Green Valley News and the Sahuarita Sun are gathering stories from the community on your favorite nurses for our upcoming special section recognizing National Nurses Week, which runs from May 6 to May 12. Acknowledge your favorite nurse here.

Feel free to share your stories with the community in this post's comment thread or email me at

Who is your favorite local nurse, and why?
