Thank You Nurses!! National Nurses Month 2022

The American Nurses Association recognizes the month of May as National Nurses Month, a time to reflect on and honor the memory of nurses we have lost this past.

Nurses make a difference as trusted advocates who ensure individuals, families, and populations receive quality patient care and services.

May is also the month of remembering AmpliVox's beloved Nancy Szluk Roth and celebrating her legacy.

Nancy grew up in Lincoln Park, MI and attended the University of Michigan, graduating in 1964 with a degree in nursing.

She was initially accepted as a aeronautical engineering student and after 3 weeks of classes the dean of engineering showed up and told her that women were not allowed in the engineering program (ca. 1960).

Her caring soul guided her to pursue the field of nursing instead, graduating with honors and serving in the ICU at Ford Hospital in Detroit. She later moved to the Chicagoland area and was a nurse at Evanston Hospital when she met Donald (Don) Richard Roth, whom she married on July 2, 1966.

Nancy later decided to become a flight attendant and was hired by United Airlines in LA as a flight attendant nurse.

Back then, all overseas commercial flights required a flight attendant nurse to be onboard.

She became a dedicated flight attendant at United Airlines, flying for decades, bringing enthusiasm and a quick wit to passengers around the globe.

Nancy traveled the world many times over and as a patriotic and proud American, she especially loved the U.S. troop transports.

As a nurse and one-time aspiring aeronautical engineer, Nancy knew the value of constantly-updated advances in technology.

And today, AmpliVox honors nurses and all others who need the latest innovations in A/V technology and services.
