In honor of National Nurse's Week we would like to highlight nurses and mentors who have truly inspired us along the way. Today's highlight comes from management and leadership author, Dr. Linda Roussel.
It's National Nurses Week. Established by the American Nurses Association (ANA) in 1993, National Nurses Week begins on May 6 and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale's birthday. This year's theme is “Nursing: the Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit.”
Earlier this year, the ANA designated 2017 as the "Year of the Healthy Nurse" to encourage nurses to "eat healthier, be more active, get better sleep, and have more joy." Why? When nurses are healthier the nation is healthier.
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."
Earlier this year, the American Nurses Association (ANA) designated 2015 as the “Year of Ethics.” Recognizing the importance of ethics in all aspects of nursing practice, ANA also released a revised code of ethics for the profession, the first since 2001.

For their tireless efforts to support and comfort the weak, injured and sick during times of peace and times of war, it’s only fitting that nurses should have some time set aside in their honor.
