Celebrate National Nurses Month

This year, National Nurses Week, traditionally celebrated from May 6 to May 12 each year, is now a month-long celebration to expand opportunities to elevate and celebrate nursing. The month-long celebration is a time “to recognize the vast contributions and positive impact of America’s 4 million registered nurses,” according to the American Nurses Association, which first declared May 6-May 12 National Nurses Week back in 1993.
