National Nurses Week (2013) begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, the birth date of Florence Nightingale. National Nurses Week is one of the nation's largest health care events, recognizing the contributions and commitments nurses make and educating the public about the significant work they perform.
Every year, this week focuses attention on the diverse ways America’s 3.1 million nurses work to save lives and to improve the health of millions of individuals. This year, the American Nurses Association has selected “Delivering Quality and Innovation in Patient Care” as the theme for 2013.
Heritage Healthcare celebrates this week and thanks all the nurses that we have the privilege of working with to provide a caring environment for seniors.
