National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
The nursing profession has been supported and promoted by the American Nurses Association (ANA) since 1896. Each of ANA’s state and territorial nurses associations promotes the nursing profession at the state and regional levels. Each conducts celebrations on these dates to recognize the contributions that nurses and nursing make to the community.
The ANA supports and encourages National Nurses Week recognition programs through the state and district nurses associations, other specialty nursing organizations, educational facilities, and independent health care companies and institutions.
To help celebrate the nurse in your facility the ANA has provided a toolkit of download of items such as thank you card, recognition certificate and other great ideas to enhance appreciating the nursing in your facility. click here for download
