May 6th marks the beginning of National Nurses Week and it goes through May 12. May 12th is Florence Nightingale’s birthday, she is seen as the founder of modern nursing. Registered Nurses are the largest of the health care profession. This week is used to celebrate the work they do for society and also educate the public on their role in health care.
President Reagan signed a proclamation saying that May 6th was National Nurses Day. That is what started the nation wide celebration for their everyday efforts! In 1990 National Nurses Day was extended to a week long celebration.
