Calvary nurses are true angels of mercy. They soothe an anguished mind as skillfully as they bring much-needed relief to a body racked with pain. Help us celebrate National Nurses Week by paying tribute to a nurse or someone special who helped you or your family.
The History of National Nurses Week
National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6 and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. These permanent dates enhance planning and position National Nurses Week as an established recognition event. As of 1998, May 8 was designated 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.
