Every May, we celebrate National Nurses Month to honor the nurses’ significant contributions to healthcare delivery. The American Nurses Association (ANA) established the first National Nurses Week in 1985. Since then, it has grown into a month-long celebration honoring nurses for their contributions to public health and our communities.
Today, National Nurses Month is celebrated across the United States and globally. The theme for this year’s Nurse’s Month is “You Make a Difference.” Every nurse plays a crucial role in their community, working in a variety of specialties and throughout the continuum of care. They are on the front lines of healthcare, offering compassionate care, shaping health policy, safeguarding community health, and changing lives. Join us in honoring these amazing heroes and recognizing the tireless effort and sacrifices they make to provide compassionate care to the patients they serve.
As we celebrate nurses this month, it’s important to acknowledge the challenges faced by those in the nursing profession. Although nursing is an occupation, for many, it is also a vocation. For all the passion nurses put into their work and the compassion they show their patients, National Nurses Month is a way for us all to express our appreciation for everything these nurses do for us. Looking forward, we must continue to support nurses and invest in their well-being to ensure the sustainability of the nursing profession.
In celebration of National Nurses Month, TigerConnect is excited to accept nominations for our second annual Nurses at the Heart of Healthcare Contest!
