ANA to focus on nurse health for National Nurses Week

The American Nurses Association will celebrate this year's National Nurses Week by placing an emphasis the health and well-being of these essential frontline providers.

National Nurses Week is an annual veneration of the nursing profession held from May 6 to May 12. This year's theme is "the balance of mind and spirit."

"Our focus on improving the health of America's nurses goes beyond self-care," said ANA President Pamela Cipriano, PhD, RN, in an emailed release. "Every time a nurse interacts with a patient, he or she has an opportunity to be a role model for good health. And a healthy nurse is more likely to talk to a patient about how to get healthy, and is more credible when promoting those behaviors. That's how nurses can help change the health of America."
