Today marks the beginning of National Nurses Week, a nationwide celebration of nurses and the vital work that they do. Observed annually, National Nurses Week begins on May 6 and ends on May 12 to commemorate Florence Nightingale’s birthday. This year's theme is "Culture of Safety. It Starts with You."
For the 14th consecutive year, the nursing profession ranks highest on Gallup’s list of the most trusted professions in the U.S. According to their annual poll that rated honesty and ethics in various fields, 85% of Americans gave nurses “high” or “very high” ratings.

Celebrated annually from May 6, National Nurses Day, through May 12, Florence Nightingale's birthday, National Nurses Week recognizes the significant impact of nurses across the nation. This year, the American Nurses Association (ANA) has selected the theme of "Nurses: Leading the Way."
