Year of the Nurse

Today I am a Guardian

At Sanford Health we are proud of our nurses. They are passionate about those in their care. They take extra steps to get to know their patients, making important meaningful connections, especially during uncertain times. They are guardians and we honor that role. As part of the Year of the Nurse at Sanford Health we thank our nurses for their passion. This day. Every day.

Meet three women who are guardians of our patients.
