Gift Ideas for Nurses Week

It’s Nurses Week! Thank a Nurse Today.

Nurses are special people. They are the ones who deliver bedside care at hospitals, put bandages on boo-boos at school, and provide care for people in the last moments of their lives. Nurses care for patients year-round, and in March, Americans take time to honor them by celebrating National Nurses Week.

When is National Nurses Week?

National Nurses Week is celebrated each year from May 6 through May 12. May 6 is known as National Nurses Day, and May 12 is the birthday or Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.

How do you celebrate National Nurses Week?
