Transplant Nurses Week – Transplant Testimonials

ITNS created Transplant Nurses Week to raise awareness of the unique contributions transplant nurses make in the lives of the people with whom they work, especially their patients.

As awareness of this important profession grows, ITNS is committed to creating more opportunities for nurses, healthcare professionals, organ donors and recipients, and their families to show their appreciation for the incredible care transplant nurses provide around the world.

In the spirit of celebration and gratitude, ITNS is now accepting Transplant Testimonials – short stories from the nurse, patient, family, or health care professional perspective. We’re searching for stories that inspire, thank, and acknowledge the tremendous work of transplant nurses.
