National Nurses Day

National Nurses Day is observed annually on May 6.  On this day, we raise awareness of all nurse contributions and commitments and acknowledge the vital role nurses play in society.  This day is also the first day of National Nurses Week beginning May 6 and ends on May 12, which is the birthday of Florence Nightingale (May 12, 1820 – August 13, 1910).  Florence Nightingale was a celebrated English, social reformer, statistician and the founder of modern nursing. She became well-known while taking care of the wounded soldiers during the Crimean War.  Nightingale was dubbed The Lady with the Lamp because of her habit of making rounds at night.
