Nursing StudentsAs The W marks its 40th anniversary of its first charter graduating class for the associate nursing degree, and prepares to graduate its 5,000th nursing student this Saturday, celebrations are being held across the United States to honor the work of nurses.

 

National Nurses Day, also known as National RN Recognition Day, opens National Nurses Week today. National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, the birth date of Florence Nightingale.

National Nurses Week is one of the nation's largest health care events, recognizing the contributions and commitments nurses make and educating the public about the significant work they perform. The American Nurses Association (ANA) supports and encourages National Nurses Week through state and district nurses associations, educational facilities, and independent health care companies and institutions. The week-long celebration is designed to accommodate the variety of schedules nurses are required to work.

If you see a nurse today take time to thank them for making a difference!
