Happy Nurses Week!
We’re proud to recognize nurses during National Nurses Week, celebrated annually from May 6 through 12. The final day of Nurses Week is the birthday of Florence Nightingale, considered the founder of modern nursing.
The American Nurses Association designated this the “Year of the Healthy Nurse,” and the theme of this year’s Nurses Week, “Nursing: The Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit.” It’s about celebrating nurses who lead the charge for health and wellness, both for their patients and themselves.
In this video, two faculty members and a student share ways they find balance in everyday life and why it’s as important to take care of yourself as it is others.
