LFCHD celebrates National Nurses Week

The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department is celebrating National Nurses Week, held annually to focus attention on the diverse ways America’s 3.1 million registered nurses work to save lives and improve the health of millions of people. This year’s theme is “Nurses: Advocating, Leading Caring.”

National Nurses Week begins on May 6 and ends May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of nursing as a modern profession.

Traditionally, National Nurses Week is devoted to highlighting the diverse ways in which registered nurses, who comprise the largest health care profession, are working to improve health care. From bedside nursing in hospitals and long-term care facilities to the halls of research institutions, state legislatures, and Congress, the depth and breadth of the nursing profession is meeting the expanding health care needs of American society.
