Nurses Week - May 6-12, 2023

From assisting with life-threatening ER crises to delivering babies and caring for the elderly in their last moments, nurses perform some of the most difficult and heartbreaking tasks in the medical world. As workers who perform the most essential healthcare tasks, nurses serve as the first point of contact for most patients. National Nurses Week honors their contributions and sacrifices and reminds us to thank the medical professionals who keep us healthy. It is celebrated between May 6, National Nurses Day, and May 12, the birthdate of celebrated nurse Florence Nightingale.

Nurse Week is celebrated annually in the United States from May 6th to May 12th, culminating on the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. During this week, we recognize the contributions and dedication of nurses in providing high-quality patient care and promoting the health and well-being of individuals and communities.

Nurses play an integral role in the healthcare system, providing a wide range of services that include administering medications, providing emotional support, performing medical procedures, and educating patients and their families about their health conditions and treatment options. Their hard work and compassion have a profound impact on the lives of their patients.

Nurse Week provides an opportunity for healthcare organizations, employers, and the public to express their appreciation for the valuable work that nurses do every day. It is also a time to promote the nursing profession and raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities facing nurses in today's healthcare environment.

During Nurse Week, there may be a variety of activities and events organized by healthcare institutions, professional nursing organizations, and communities to honor and celebrate nurses. These may include awards ceremonies, educational workshops, special meals, recognition events, and more.
