"We are excited to celebrate Nurses Week by recognizing health care professionals and educators," said Blake Halladay, Senior Manager of Partnerships. "Please join me in thanking nurses who have made all the difference by providing outstanding care."
National Nurses Week was established by the American Nurses Association and proclaimed a national celebration by President Regan in 1982. Nurses Week remains a permanent celebration of the dedicated professionals who have become nurses or are pursuing a career in nursing.
The theme of this year's National Nurses Week is 4 million Reasons to Celebrate, commemorating more than 4 million nursing professionals nationwide. The College has partnered with Compass Outdoor, Saunders Outdoor and Lamar to post billboards raising awareness for Utah Nurses Week. Nightingale College will also provide Thank You cards at Hub locations throughout Utah, Idaho, Nevada and Wyoming, for patients and family members to express gratitude for nurses who have made a positive difference in their life through compassionate care.
Each year, Nurses Week begins with Student Nurses Day on May 6 and concludes on May 12 to honor the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale. As the founder of modern nursing, Nightingale is commemorated by those who carry her flame through to the next generation of nurses.
