College invites the public to join them in thanking nurses on Monday, May 6 from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the west side of the Salt Lake City and County Building's Washington Square.

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.
