We are wrapping up National Nurses Week and I wanted to do my little bit to recognize these tireless men and women who contribute so much…
Thanks to all of you for all that you do!
Like Florence Nightingale, you are on the front line of all our health care battles and journeys…
Often described as an art and a science, nursing is a profession that embraces dedicated people with varied interests, strengths and passions because of the many opportunities the profession offers. As nurses, we work in emergency rooms, school based clinics, and homeless shelters, to name a few. We have many roles – from staff nurse to educator to nurse practitioner and nurse researcher – and serve all of them with passion for the profession and with a strong commitment to patient safety.
National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6, also known as National Nurses Day, through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. Visit the NNW History page, part of the NNW Media Kit. See below to learn more.
