Mayo Clinic celebrates Nurse Appreciation Week

Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

Wednesday morning, Mayo Clinic hosted an event to honor their nurses in celebration of Nurse Appreciation Week. The event took place at Phillips Hall.

Nurses heard from Faith Roberts, Director of Magnet, Professional Practice and Parish Nursing at Carle Foundation Hospital and Carle Physician Group in Urbana, Illinois.

The theme of this year's appreciation week is "Families - One Common Goal." Mother and Daughter Stephanie and Sharon Prinsen understand the importance of this theme since they both work as nurses at Mayo Clinic. "It's very stressful to be in the hospital setting so we're here to help them [families] through their healthcare journey. Whether it's the path to wellness, or end of life, it's important as nurses that we help them through that journey," said Sharon Prinsen.  

"I like helping people. Just being there in there most difficult times is something I'll never forget," said Stephanie Prinsen.

Nurse appreciation week coincides with Florence Nightingale's birthday. Nightingale was a British nurse known for her help in the Crimean War.

    Strength, resilience, and the old adage, "Never give up." They were words that the town of Rushford lived by during the devastating flood 10 years ago. And they were words that the town celebrated on Sunday. Rushford residents gathered outside St. Joseph's Catholic Church for a ceremony to mark a decade since the flood that swept through southeastern Minnesota.

    Rochester Public Library runs out of solar eclipse glasses, warns about fake glasses

    The highly-anticipated solar eclipse is one week from today, which means you've got that long to get your hands on a pair of special solar eclipse glasses to safely watch the sun.  The Rochester Public library says it's all out of those glasses after handing out about 1,500 pairs for free, but it's still receiving dozens of calls each hour asking for a pair.   It got most of the glasses from a grant and then purchased some more to meet the high demand.

    Minnesota is giving up efforts to reach a tax reciprocity agreement with Wisconsin. The end of negotiations means the state of Minnesota will give its residents who cross the border a tax credit to make up for the higher Wisconsin taxes. That tax credit will be in effect for 2017. It is estimated that it will cost the state more than $8 million. Minnesota lawmakers passed legislation this year allowing the tax credits to kick in if a tax reciprocity agreement couldn't be reached. M...More >>
