What Is National Nurses Week?
National Nurses Week is an annual event that begins on National Nurses Day (May 6) and ends on Florence Nightingale’s birthday (May 12) to support and honor nurses around the nation. May 8 became National Student Nurses Day in 1998 and we celebrate National School Nurses Day on the Wednesday that falls within National Nurses Week.
Each year, the American Nurses Association (ANA) leads the celebration to honor nurses. For the last three years, ANA has championed a month-long celebration to provide more opportunities to show appreciation for the invaluable jobs nurses do.
