Celebrate Nurses Week

Given everything this year has been thrown at nurses and other healthcare workers in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic, there isn’t a better or more appropriate times to focus on recognizing, appreciating, and investing in our front line staff and nursing staff.

Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. All different types of nurses contribute to their communities in a myriad of ways all year round, this week is the time for these communities to show their support back to the nursing profession!

Nurses Week 2020 was unlike any other. As a society, we asked more of nurses than we ever have by asking them to put their lives on the front lines in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. SDAHO wants to take this week every year to share our gratitude and support for the work nurses do every day, in times of crisis, and always.

This year the American Nurses Association (ANA) has extended the Year of the Nurse into 2021. This again gives an opportunity to highlight all that nurses are, have been, and will be in our society. 2021 is a time to celebrate the efforts made by nurses and many other healthcare workers everywhere that improve health conditions; recognize and reflect upon the challenging conditions that are facing all of us; whether it is physical, emotional, or mental. Despite all of this, nurses and other healthcare practitioners are continuing to step forward. WE THANK YOU!
