FARGO — The Spiritual Care team at Sanford Health is blessing nurses in honor of National Nurses Week.
They started doing this about four years ago. Specifically, they bless the nurses' hands since that is what they use to help heal patients.
The ceremony is intended to thank the nurses of their continued work day after day to help those they serve. The Spiritual Team tells WDAY News they've found that during the pandemic's intense workload, this blessing helps them feel valued for their hard work.
