Together with the American Nurses Association (ANA), the National Nursing Network Organization honors and celebrates the work of nurses during National Nurses Week from May 6–12, 2018. This year, the ANA recognizes the vital role of nurses in elevating the health of individuals and communities through the theme “Nurses: Inspire, Innovate, Influence.” Additionally, ANA declared 2018 to be the “Year of Advocacy”. A National Nurse for Public Health would embody the leadership role of nurses in innovating and advancing the health and well-being of patients, families, communities, and our entire nation.
Each year, National Nurses Week honors the foundational work of Florence Nightingale around her birthday. This year, we reflect on how nurses protect and improve public health. To mark the occasion, the ANA provides the National Nurses Week 2018 Toolkit. During this Nurses Week, let’s recognize nurses as America’s most trusted professionals as we advocate and influence change. What better way to honor the work of nurses than through recognition of a National Nurse for Public Health.
