May 8, 2015 (Louisville, KY) — Every year, National Nurses Week focuses attention on the diverse ways America’s 3.1 million registered nurses work to save lives and to improve the health of millions of individuals. This year, the American Nurses Association (ANA) has selected “Ethical Practice. Quality Care” as the theme for 2015.
National Nurses Week 2015 runs May 6 to May 12, which is the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of nursing as a modern profession. During this week Galen College of Nursing will be hosting a Dare to Care and local family needs drive to honor Nightingale’s service efforts. Faculty, staff and nursing students will be honored by receiving free pizza lunches and snack breaks, informative emails, fun fact quizzes, and cupcake treats on Nightingales’ birthday. Additionally, Galen will offer daily drawings for prizes in support of its students with gas cards, restaurant gift cards, Galen wear and books.
Traditionally, National Nurses Week is devoted to highlighting the diverse ways in which registered nurses, who comprise the largest health care profession, are working to improve health care. Galen College of Nursing is recognizing all nurses and nursing students for their dedication and service.
