Some heroes wear capes, others wear scrubs.
Today marks the start of National Nurses Week, an event commemorating the birthday of Florence Nightingale (the founder of modern nursing) and honoring the RNs who keep us safe.
Now more than ever, we're appreciative of our frontline healthcare workers, who have been tirelessly working during the coronavirus pandemic to keep us and our families healthy.
With stars showing their appreciation for nurses, like Jennifer Aniston surprising an RN on a video call or Jimmy Kimmel and Jack Black teaming up to gift another nurse $10,000 worth of Postmates, we know that this week will be full of support for nurses all around the country.
To celebrate this week, we've rounded up some of the most comforting TV nurses of all time.
Since one of the best things we can do to keep real-life hospital workers safe is to socially distance ourselves, these fictional nurses are a perfect companion for some nighttime binge watching, and are sure to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Check out our favorite on-screen nurses, and be sure to thank any RNs you know in your life for their work today and every day.
