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.

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."
