NEW YORK (PIX11) – An NYU nurse is getting a lot of attention for a thank you note she wrote to a flight crew.

The note, which was posted on Reddit, reads, “As a nurse, I know how hard it is to work on Christmas!”

The nurse spent her holidays in Virginia and flew back to New York on Christmas day to care for patients at NYU Langone. “Thank you for being away from your family today so I could spend the last week in my small VA hometown with my family and head back to NYC tonight so I can take care of my cancer patients at NYU Med Ctr tomorrow. Your job is important!”

After the flight, she gave the pilot and the crew Christmas cards with the note inside.
