CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF-TV)- This is National Nurses Week. t’s a salute to some very special people who see us through those medical situations we’ve all had.

Hospitals and doctor’s offices all over the country are honoring nurses this week, and at Erlanger Health System administrators are delivering goody baskets to every station.
There are 2500 nurses in that system, but they are not all working directly with patients.
The health industry has changed.

JAN KEYES, ERLANGER HEALTH SYSTEM, CHIEF NURSE EXECUTIVE
"A lot of people just envision a nurse being at the bedside..or maybe in a doctor’s office. But anymore its from information and technology..it is billing,coding, insurance..its such a wide variety…its so open now that you can’t go wrong."

National Nurses Week runs through May 12th.
