What is National Nurses Week?

National Nurses Week, a time to honor nurses’ dedication and expertise, has a rich history. The idea began in 1953 with a proposal for a “Nurse Day.” A year later, a week was dedicated to nurses in honor of Florence Nightingale. However, it wasn’t permanent.

The push for a dedicated celebration continued. In 1982, a “National Recognition Day for Nurses” was established on May 6th. Nurses, deserving a longer celebration, finally got its week of appreciation in 1990. Nurses Week would be celebrated moving forward from May 6th to May 12th, coinciding with Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Finally, in 1993, these dates were permanently designated as National Nurses Week.
