Nurses Week 2009

Nurses Week 2009

May 6 is National RN Recognition Day, marking the start of National Nurses Week. Every year, we honor the efforts of America’s 2.9 million registered nurses, who save lives and maintain the health of millions of people.

The American Nurses Association has selected “Nurses: Building a Healthy America” as the theme for 2009’s observance. The weeklong celebration runs through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of nursing as a modern profession.

Traditionally, National Nurses Week has been devoted to highlighting the many ways in which registered nurses, the largest group of healthcare professionals, are working to improve healthcare. From bedside nursing in hospitals and long-term care facilities to working in the halls of research institutions, the nursing profession is meeting the expanding healthcare requirements of American society.

Allheart™ is proud to help raise awareness of the value of nursing and to help educate the public about the role that nurses play in serving America’s healthcare needs. We honor their 24/7/365 dedication, commitment, and tireless efforts to promote and maintain the health of this nation.

Nurses! Don’t be bashful, Post the gifts that you would like to receive for Nurse’s Week. Let people honor what you do.

Nurses, we salute you with all our hearts!
