Nurses’ week is an annual celebration of nurses worldwide for the work they do for others. The week allows people the chance to acknowledge the nurses in their lives. It also provides an opportunity to thank nurses within the industry as a whole for the work they’ve done.
Though the week seeks to honor all nurses, there are specific days dedicated to certain nurses. May 6 is National School Nurse Day, May 8 is for student nurses on National School Nurse Day and May 12 is International Nurses Day.
