National Nurses Week

May 6th - May 12th

Company: American Nurses Association
Telephone: (800) 244 -4ANA
Web site:

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale's birthday. These permanent dates enhance planning and position National Nurses Week as an established recognition event. Nurses frequently are the under-recognized heroes of the medical field, who toil tirelessly to provide care for their patients. As of 1998, May 8 was designated as National Student Nurses Day, to be celebrated annually. And as of 2003, National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week each year.
