National Nurses Week History


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 as 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.
 
The nursing profession has been supported and promoted by the American Nurses Association (ANA) since 1896. Each of ANA's state and territorial nurse’s associations promotes the nursing profession at the state and regional levels. Each conducts celebration on these dates to recognize the contributions that nurses and nursing make to the community.
 
The ANA supports and encourages National Nurses Week recognition programs through the state and district nurse’s associations, other specialty nursing organizations, educational facilities, and independent health care companies and institutions.
