National Nurse’s Appreciation Week!
Monday May 6th – Sunday May 12th 2019
National Nurses Week celebrates nurses and their role in society. The week also helps to raise awareness about nursing as a possible career choice and also to educate the public about the kind of work nurses are involved in. This celebration coincides with Florence Nightingale’s birthday which is May 12th.
The week celebrates the legacy of Florence Nightingale, a nurse who became famous for treating wounded soldiers during the Crimean war, and for her work in establishing nursing as a profession. Florence Nightingale founded a nursing school in 1860, providing the first type of professional nursing establishment in the world.
We at SLP promote and support our nurses, who daily care for our residents. Each facility will receive gifts from SLP Leadership for their RN and LVN staff. To celebrate National Nurses Week at your facility consider:
- Put flowers at each nursing station
- Give each nurse a Thank You card
- Plan a potluck and fellowship together
- Plan a bar-be-que or picnic
- Put an article in your town paper about your nursing staff
- Have each nurse wear their nursing cap one day during the week
- Suggest that each nurse wear their nursing school pin during the week
- Decorate each nursing station with festive signs, balloons and streamers
- Alert other departments at your center about National Nurses Week and encourage them to show their gratitude to the nurses.
Thank you to our wonderful nurses who daily care for our residents.
