Celebrating Nurses’ Week

Nurses’ week takes place between Thursday, May 6 – Wednesday, May 12, 2021. May 12 is significant as it marks the revered Florence Nightingale’s birthday. It takes place annually and this is going to mark the 201st year of celebrating Nurses’ Week.

Nurses have sacrificed so much for the community. It’s only fitting that there’s a week dedicated to giving back to them. Accordingly, in this blog, we will take a look at:

  • What is Nurses’ Week?
  • What can you do to celebrate Nurses’ Week?
  • The history of Nurses’ Week

What Is Nurses’ Week?

Nurses’ week is an annual celebration of nurses worldwide for the work they do for others. The week allows people the chance to acknowledge the nurses in their lives. It also provides an opportunity to thank nurses within the industry as a whole for the work they’ve done.
