Next Week Is National Nurses Week 2015

Katherine Merullo

May 6-12, 2015 will celebrate National Nurses Week 2015 with the theme “Ethical Practice. Quality Care”. This week developed by the American Nurses Association honors the many nurses working the multiple fields of the health care profession. This year’s theme recognizes the importance of ethics in nursing and acknowledges the strong commitment, compassion and care nurses display in their profession. This theme also shows the importance of advocating for the rights, health and safety of nurses and their patients.

Another useful tool is their National Nurses Week 2015 Resource Toolkit available for download off their website.

On Thursday, May 7, 2015 at 1: 00 PM EST there will be a free webinar called, “My Patient, My Code, My Practice: Ethical Decision Making & Action.

Be sure to check out their website to learn some useful ways to recognize and promote your nursing staff’s professional skills and abilities during this health care observance.  If you have any questions about the recognition week, contact Adam Sachs at the American Nurses Association via email: adam.sachs@ana.org.

We would love to see how you recognize your teams during this week.  Be sure to share your ideas and photos on Facebook and Twitter.
