Well, this is exciting! I just learned of a recent Congressional Resolution that officially supports National Nurse's Week, which is May 6–12 every year!
The Resolution details the virtues and contribution of nurses, and concludes that The House of Representatives "supports the goals and ideals of National Nurse's Week, as founded by the American Nurses Association; recognizes the significant contributions of nurses to the health care system of the United States; and encourages the people of the United States to observe National Nurse's Week with appropriate recognition, ceremonies, activities, and programs to demonstrate the importance of nurses to the every-day lives of patients."
Hooray! With health and wellness on the minds of so many of us, how wonderful that our nurses, who play such a vital role, are being acknowledged. Did you see that they also encourage Americans to observe National Nurse's Week? Sounds like a good idea to us!
