Nurse's Week Honors Local Nurses

MAY 11, 2006 -- Some local nurses are honored for helping heal ailing bodies. A dinner Thursday night marks what officials at UNCW are calling Nurse's Week.  It's the second largest such event in the state, with about 300 people attending.  The nurses receive awards after being nominated by their colleagues. The event is also aimed at encouraging students to enter the profession and 3,000 dollars in scholarships should help with that.
