Mother and daughter celebrate National Nurses Week in Eau Claire

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW)- It's National Nurses Week, and what better way to celebrate than with family?

Over at HSHS Sacred Heart in Eau Claire a newly registered nurse is following in her mother's footsteps. 

Nancy Demars has been a registered nurse for almost 36 years, and was thrilled that her daughter Morgan chose the same career path. 

Morgan has only been part of the Sacred Heart team for a month, but said it's nice knowing she can always count on her mom.

"I do remember a specific time when I went home because I had a test about cardiology and my mom drew a nice big diagram from me of the heart and explained everything very thoroughly and then it clicked," said Morgan Demars. 

"I don't get to see her everyday, but just knowing she's here is comforting. I think of Sacred Heart as kind of my home away from home, and to have actual family members in with my work family is pretty special," said Nancy Demars. 

Nancy and Morgan work on separate floors at the hospital, but do occasionally bump into each other.
