This year’s ‘National Nurses Week’ features new Kharisma James Legacy Scholarship

Ahead of the celebration of National Nurses Week, a group of youngsters in nurses’ scrubs got a head start and made a surprise visit to nurses at TTUHSC El Paso’s Gayle Greve Hunt School of Nursing to deliver treats and thank them for everything they do.

The week-long celebration, Monday, May 6 through Sunday, May 12; not only includes gifts and honors, but a very special scholarship has been established as well.

As part of Nurses Week, the Kharisma James Legacy Scholarship Award has been created to honor James’ memory as a dedicated, confident woman and compassionate nurse and mother.

Kharisma James was a graduate of the Hunt School of Nursing and an operating room/surgery nurse at The Hospitals of Providence when she passed away in 2018.  She was struck and killed as she shielded three children from an oncoming car in an El Paso elementary school parking lot.

El Pasoans are invited to take part in honoring Kharisma James by donating to her legacy scholarship award online.

In 1993, the American Nurses Association declared May 6-12 as the national week to celebrate and elevate the nursing profession.  Each year, the celebration ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.

Visit the American Nurses Association website for more info.
