Every year on May 6-12, the USA celebrates the heroic effort of our 4 million registered nurses working in the USA. National Nurses Week ends on May 12 every year in honor of Florence Nightingale's birthday, who is widely considered the founder of modern nursing.

This year is even more special with the World Health Organization's announcement of Year of the Nurse, and it's also the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth!

In fact, the American Nurses Association (ANA) has extended this year's National Nurses Week to a whole month of celebration! They designated each week of May with special themes.

Week 1 (May 1-9): Self-Care

Start the month with mindful self-recognition. Focus on yours and others' emotional and physical well-being by encouraging and challenging yourself, colleagues and friends to engage in healthier activities.

Week 2 (May 10-16): Recognition

Raise visibility of the critical work nurses do and foster greater understanding of the diversity of the nursing profession by honoring exemplary nurses and engaging with your community.

Week 3 (May 17-23): Professional Development

Focus on how you can excel and lead in your nursing career or inspire and help others in their professional nursing journey.

Week 4 (May 24-31): Community Engagement

Help promote nurses' invaluable contributions by engaging with your community, educating them on what nurses do, and encouraging future nurses.

PassportUSA would like to extend a special thanks to the hundreds of RNs currently working for us at healthcare facilities across the United States. You deserve special recognition for your efforts to inspire, innovate, and influence every day!

Show your support for U.S. nurses and the great work they do by leaving a comment below, or by sending a post of appreciation with the hashtag #NationalNursesWeek.
