GREAT FALLS – “To be a nurse means that you have passion, that you care, that you take away sometimes your family time and the people that you do love at home, and you give to others at the nursing home, the hospital or anywhere you work as a nurse,” Missouri River Center Director of Nursing Barbara Church said.

And that’s exactly what the Missouri River Center here in Great Falls is doing.

Monday was fiesta day filled with tacos and nonalcoholic margaritas.

Tuesday was s’more day.

“Because we all need s’more awesome nurses,” Church laughs.

Wednesday was a sports theme, with the option to wear a favorite jersey.

And then today, spa day. A chance for the Missouri River nurses to be pampered.

Nurses were given the opportunity to have a free manicure and pedicure, along with facials and massages.

Church says its been a fun week of celebrating nurses, but nurses should be recognized every day for their hard work.

“We all celebrate the nurses and know that it’s important that we take pride in what we do and we provide the best care possible for anyone that we serve,” Church said.

The Missouri River Center will be continuing their celebration Friday with a carnival theme, where they will give out prizes and play games throughout the day.
