National Nurses Week, American Nurses Association:"Often described as an art and a science, nursing is a profession that embraces dedicated people with varied interests, strengths and passions because of the many opportunities the profession offers. As nurses, we work in emergency rooms, school based clinics, and homeless shelters, to name a few. We have many roles – from staff nurse to educator to nurse practitioner and nurse researcher – and serve all of them with passion for the profession and with a strong commitment to patient safety."

Nurses'Day/Week Cards,


National Nurses Week offers opportunity to thank health care “guardian angels”, American Greetings:(April 2004) - A child born prematurely breathes with the assistance of a ventilator. An elderly man requires a feeding tube after a stroke. Where would they be without the assistance of a caring, skilled nurse? As National Nurses Week (May 6 - 12) approaches, the importance of and need for good nurses should be top of mind. American Greetings offers several Nurses Day cards to help express appreciation. With hospice services and assisted living facilities in high demand, and hospitals housing larger intensive care units (including cardiac monitoring, respiratory assistance and intense treatments,) skilled and specialized nurses have become increasingly important to the survival of many Americans. National Nurses Week serves as a friendly reminder to recognize the services and special care nurses provide."

Nurses Christian Fellowship Invites Churches to Pray for Nursing:"National Nurses Week May 6-12 prompts us to remember nurses who represent Jesus among suffering people. We pray that nurses and nursing students will experience God's comfort and strength as they face challenges and opportunities in caring for others in the name of Jesus Christ. In light of the serious nursing shortage, we pray that students will be called to enter nursing, and faculty called to teach them. We also pray for nurses working today, that they will provide safe and compassionate care despite difficult conditions."
