National Nurses Week

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and runs through May 12th (which is Florence Nightingale’s birthday).  These set dates enhance planning and position National Nurses Week as an established national recognition event, including May 8th as national Student Nurses Day specifically, and the Wednesday within the week is always National School Nurse Day.  

The American Nurses Association (or ANA) has been around since 1896 and this year proclaims the 2017 celebration as “Nursing: the Balance of Mind, Body and Spirit” celebrating all of the nurses who lead the charge for health and wellness. 

At Dignity Health we will have a week of celebratory recognitions planned! Of course, a donation to the Foundation in the name of your favorite nurse is a great way to thank them!
