For National Nurses Week, May 6 to May 12, Research!America and member nursing schools and organizations will shine a light on the important contributions nurses and nurse researchers make to the health and well-being of Americans and individuals worldwide.
This year’s theme, “Nurses: Inspire, Innovate, Influence,” reflects the widespread impact of nurses in health research and patient care. The American Nurses Association (ANA) has led the annual celebration since 1994 to honor the birthday of modern nursing’s founder Florence Nightingale.
From conducting research on evidence-based improvements to care, translating research findings into practice, to advocating for policy change or serving as full partners on health care teams, nurses play an integral role in improving health and health care delivery. Join Research!America in honoring the country’s 3 million registered nurses. To learn more about National Nurses Week, click here.
