AUSTIN, TX -- We are saddened by the tragedy in Las Vegas on Sunday evening. It is with deep sorrow that we mourn the loss of so many lives and hundreds who were wounded. We offer our sincerest sympathy to those who may have lost loved ones or suffered injury. We also want to acknowledge those NPs and other health care providers in Las Vegas who have stepped up to offer care and are working tirelessly, from staffing the ER and the ICU, to running the blood banks and lending an ear to listen.
Thank you for the work you are doing, caring for those in the Las Vegas area and for those in communities across the nation who were impacted by this tragedy. No deed goes unnoticed in times of great need.
