Nurses and Hospital Week: Why do you celebrate?

Nurses and Hospital Week: Why do you celebrate?

Giving thanks, recognizing our staff, and acknowledging the contributions that nurses make every day is a big part of the reason we celebrate Nurses Week every year. Another equally important reason is to remind the public of nursing’s contributions to the health and well-being of the nation. Why do you celebrate? Please share your thoughts below.

The following events are part of AAMC’s annual recognition of Nurses and Hospital Week. We hope to see you there!
