National Nurses Week begins May 6

Take a moment to join us and help celebrate National Nurses Week 2014. This year’s theme, Nurses Leading the Way, promotes nursing leadership as nurses improve the quality of health care and ultimately, the health of the nation.

Annually, National Nurses Week begins on May 6, marked as Registered Nurse (RN) Recognition Day, and ends on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of nursing as a modern profession.

The American Nurses Association encourages all RNs to participate in recognition activities and to educate the public about the nursing profession and its role in their lives.
