SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Monday, May 6, is National Nursing Day, kicking off a week of celebrating the profession nationwide. 

Action News Now spoke with nurses at Shasta Regional Medical Center about what a career in nursing means to them.

"We like to elevate our nurses on nurses week," said Stacia Reeder, the chief nursing officer for Shasta Regional Medical Center. "We give them a luncheon and some small gifts and just say how much we appreciate what they do not only here but in the community." 

The week of celebration is not only for veteran nurses, but it's also for aspiring nurses who are just starting out in the industry. 

Shasta Regional Medical Center held a lunch on Monday for all aspiring students from high school through graduate school. 

"Personally actually my mother was actually a nurse and when I was young I visited her at her work and I always admired her and what she did so much," said Laura Finn, a recent nursing graduate. "I thought she had a very special profession."
