Let's hear it for the healers!

First Posted: 10/09/13 EDT Updated: 10/11/13 EDT

Where would we be without fabulous ER nurses? The first full week of October is Emergency Nurses Week, and we're getting in on the celebration. So, to everyone who has had our backs in the ER ... we want to see your faces! Add a photo of you in your scrub-wearing glory below, and share your favorite moment on the job. If you'd like to thank an emergency nurse, you can also upload a special photo or just add a comment in the section below.

To all the the non-ER nurses out there: We can't wait to celebrate National Nurses Week in May!

Update: The ER may never stop, but this gallery is closing for the night. Thank you for your beautiful submissions (and we know there are a lot more of you out there who are just being modest)!
