Thank a Nurse - National Nurse's Week

National Nurses Week is a week that we can pay tribute to the thousands of nurses who dedicate their lives to caring for others. The week began on Sunday, May 6th, with National Nurses Day; continues May 8th as National Student Nurses Day, and concludes on May 12th which is International Nurses Day and also Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Nightingale is considered to be the founder of modern nursing. Her legacy lives on in the pledge that all nurses make before they begin their profession.
