National Nurse Day in the United States

We celebrate National Nurses Day every year on the second Monday of May. It is a day of gratitude to all who serve in the nursing profession, as well as a day to honor the personal and professional achievements of nurses. In keeping with the spirit of National Nurses Day, we are also starting the countdown to the next National Nurses Day, which falls next month. By reading this article, you will learn some interesting facts about National Nurses Day and the upcoming Nursing Appreciation Month.

In the early days, National Nurses Day was called Nurses Day. But, later, the name was changed to indicate the spirit of the day to something else – National Volunteer Week. On that day, May 15, many hospitals, clinics and organizations held fundraising activities for nurses serving in the areas of community health care. Proceeds from these activities support nurses and attend services and programs designed by nursing organizations.

Hospitals and other such organizations host ‘Nursery Clean-up Day’. This is an excellent time for moms and dads to meet their favorite nurses. On this day, volunteers from nursing units have the opportunity to work with mothers and meet new little ones. Nurses play an important role in caring for and helping children. They are an integral part of the healthcare team that takes care of the baby from conception to the end.

If you want to make a difference by participating in this important event, you can start by volunteering at your local nursing facility. You will be stunned to see the things you will find around the nursing facility. From the elderly to infants and children, to cancer patients, everyone needs the loving care of nurses. In fact, National Nurses Day isn’t just about nurses. This is an ideal opportunity to involve all those people who have made a difference in the field of nursing.

There are many events you can participate in on National Nurses Day. You can go to the local hospital to give a speech, or you can join an activity like a bake sale or cookout with another nurse in the area. Why not organize a benefit concert for those who can’t make it to Washington DC?

With National Nurses Day being celebrated every year, it has become very popular. Earlier, only people living in the United States were able to celebrate this day. However, now nurses around the world are also celebrating the importance of National Nurses Day. They would like to thank their community for the love and support and express their gratitude to the medical fraternity for giving them a wonderful career.
