National Nurses Week begins on May 6th and ends on May 12th which also happens to be Florence Nightingale's birthday.International Nurses Day is celebrated on May 12th of each year.

This day has been celebrated since 1965. It's celebrated to remember all of the contributions and sacrifices nurses make to society. Nursing is still considered a low-paid and thankless job.

Nurses around the world are responsible for advancements in healthcare. They work on the frontline, directly responsible for patient care and outcome. 

International Nurses day is a day to commemorate the importance of their vocation. Healthcare facilities, nursing homes, medical clinics, Doctor's offices all have activities for nurses, get togethers, gift-giving, seminars, banquets, and other communal events.

Keep the date in mind and remember to let the nurses in your life know how much you appreciate them. I will be letting my fellow nurses know.
