National Nurses Week – May 6 – 12!

nurse practitioner week

Nurses Week  – a time for all us to give thanks to our unsung heroes. They do so much and don’t get enough recognition. So celebrate the nurses in your life.

 

Just saying thank you reminds them how much they mean to us. Nurses make our lives better. Can you imagine being in the hospital without nurses?

 

 

A Gallup poll in December 2017 rated Nurses the highest in honesty and ethics. It has been listed as the top profession for 16 years for ethical and honesty!  That is something to celebrate.

National Nurses Week!

Nurses Week started in 1953 and was first celebrated in 1954 with the goal of focusing on the people who do so much to care for us.

 

The last day of Nurse Week, May 12th is Florence Nightingale’s birthday. She is the founder of modern day nursing. A favorite quote of hers is: “I attribute my success to this – I never gave or took any excuse.”

 

International Nurses Day is May 12th.

 

 

Nurses are very important to lives, so this week take the time to thank a nurse for what they do. They deserve it!

 

“Live life when you have it. Life is a splendid gift-there is nothing small about it.” – Florence Nightingale
