International Nurses Week falls every year on the 6th of May to the 12th of May and is fast approaching for 2020. The USA pride themselves on ensuring nurses receive the thanks they deserve every year.
The American Nurses Association supports and encourages National Nurses Week recognition programs through the state and district nurses associations, other specialty nursing organizations, educational facilities, and independent health care companies and institutions.
In Ireland we want to ensure that our nurses are recognised this International Nurses week. To show our appreciation of the nursing profession in 2013, we launched our #CelebrateNurses Campaign and over the past 7 years we have been campaigning for Nurses to get the appreciation they deserve on International Nurses Week and indeed throughout the year. Our aim was to get 365 messages of thanks for our everyday heroes from those they have helped. Using the #CelebrateNurses we achieved our goal. We pride ourselves in helping nurses to get recognised for their hard work and especially helping to celebrate International Nurses Week in Ireland.
For 2020 Celebrate Nurses are offering packs to any healthcare facilities that want to get involved, with a letter of thanks to their Nurses and some goodies to get you started on your event, to receive a pack email firstname.lastname@example.org and visit our site celebratenurses.ie
