National Nurses Week
May 6-12, 2018

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6, also known as National Nurses Day, through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. The 2018 theme, Inspire, Innovate and Influence, is particularly evocative of the art and science of nursing—Nurses dedicate their lives to providing quality nursing care, and always inspire, innovate and influence the profession.
