National Nurses Week
National Nurses week is May 6–12!
Nurses and health professionals have devoted themselves to a grueling profession with compassion and perseverance. But despite backbreaking understaffing, terrifying workplace safety issues and dizzying schedules, nurses and other healthcare professionals remain at the bedside of patients, providing care for our communities when they need it most. During National Nurses Week, celebrated each May, we honor nurses and the work they do and have launched the Code Red: Understaffing = Patient Care Crisis campaign to improve their working conditions.
