We are celebrating some crucial caregivers through National Nurses Week.

On News 13 This Morning Lauren Brigman highlights the work of some of the local nurses at Mission Hospital in Asheville.

In the labor and delivery unit, practicing various training simulations help to prepare nurses for emergency situations.

When it comes to caring for the smallest patients, nurses say special bonds are formed.

"Just getting to know the families. So many of our patients are here for months at a time so you really get to know these families, and getting to see them go home is the best feeling,” says registered nurse, Natalie Rose.

News 13 also got a look at nurses working around the clock, caring for babies in intensive care.

They say compassion is one of the best qualities to have in order to do the job.

Hospital representatives say nearly 4,000 nurses are employed through Mission Health.
