Each year, National Nurses Week is observed May 6-12 to recognize nurses for their service and dedication to caring for others and improving the health of patients nationwide. Throughout the week, health care organizations celebrate their teams, and people across the nation thank the nurses who have made a difference in their lives.

Nurses Week celebrates the effort, dedication and sacrifice nurses make every day. Nurses are essential members of America’s healthcare workforce who provide care through every stage of life, working with patients at their most intimate and vulnerable moments. Nurses Week offers a chance to highlight and celebrate nurses for all that they do.

This year’s theme is “Nurses Make the Difference” and, according to the American Nurses Association, “honors the incredible nurses who embody the spirit of compassion and care in every health care setting.”

Nurses play a critical part of the HQI team, and we thank them and all of the nation’s nurses for the positive impacts they make every day.
