In 1993, the American Nurses Association declared May 6-12 as the national week to ‘celebrate and elevate the nursing profession’. Each year, the celebration ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.

National Nurses Week is a time for all of us to recognize the vast contributions and positive impact of America’s 4 million registered nurses.

According to a Gallup poll, Americans have rated nursing as the no. 1 most-trusted profession. Gallup found that 84% of those surveyed rated the honesty and ethical standards of nurses as “very high” or “high” — above that of doctors, pharmacists and teachers.
