Nurses Week 2019!

Posted by Orville Caval at May 7, 2019 1:31:31 PM


In 1993, the American Nurses Association declared a national week to celebrate and elevate the nursing profession. Each year, the celebration starts on May 6th and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale's birthday. The purpose of this week-long celebration is to raise awareness of the value of nursing and help educate the public about the role nurses play in meeting the healthcare needs of Americans. 

For the past 17 years, Gallup polls have consistently found that nursing is the most trusted profession for honesty and ethical standards. Join us in celebrating the nurses of our nation, who are at the forefront of improving patient care and transforming healthcare!
