National Nurses Week 2022

What is National Nurses Week?

Nurses week is a nursing recognition event for previous or existing nursing workforce staff. The ANA initiated \”National RN Recognition Day” to honor the nation\’s indispensable registered nurses for their tireless commitment 365 days a year.

National Nurses Week is an annual event that takes place every year from May 6th to 12th. It is a time for nurses to celebrate their achievements and the contributions they make to society.

National Nurses Week was first established in 1954 by the American Nursing Association as a way of honoring all nurses. The week is also intended to raise awareness of nursing issues, such as the shortage of nurses in the United States and encourage people to pursue careers in nursing.

In addition, National Nurses Week has been celebrated with many events over the years including conferences, ceremonies, and award presentations.

When is it?

Nurses week begins Friday May 6 and ends Thursday May 12. The dates for national nurse week are always May 6 — 12, because May 12 was Florence Nightingale’s birthday. The first national nurses\’ week occurred October 11-16, 1954 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s mission in the Crimea War.

It was not until 1982 that a joint resolution by the United States Congress in conjunction with the American Nurses Association (ANA) resulted in the May 6th designation as nurse\’s day. May 6th is the first day of National Nurses Week. May 8th brings particular attention to student nurses.

National Student Nurses Day, and May 12th is International Nurses Day and National School Nurse Day! All different types of nurses and healthcare staff contribute to their communities in a myriad of ways all year round, this week is the time for these communities to show their support back to the nursing profession!
