Nurses Week is a time that we are able to reflect on all you do for your community each and everyday. It's a weeklong celebration of our thanks to you for your hard work and dedication to the field of nursing, and we're honored to have the opportunity to celebrate with you.
This year we celebrate Nurses Week with a vintage-inspired comic book theme of Super Nurses. Nurses are truly the superheroes of their families, workplaces, and communities, and we wanted to honor that in a fun way. You are always our Super Nurse, and this week we get a special opportunity to show it in some fun ways with some events and resources.
Please see our list of Nurses Week events and resources below. It's our small way of saying thank you and giving back to those that give to us everyday.
