National Nurses Week 2022

The ANA designates May 6th through the 12th as National Nurses Week to honor the strength, dedication, and perseverance of nurses in the field.

While one week is not enough to recognize the impact that nurses have made on us, people all over the US take this week to express their gratitude by sharing kind words and appreciation for the work they do 24/7, 365 days a year.

Nurses Week 2020 was recognized as the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale and the Year of the Nurse and Midwife.

Due to the lasting effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Year of the Nurse and Midwife theme was extended for Nurses Week 2021, too.

Although the theme for Nurses Week 2022 has not yet been released, we are certain that it will be something special. Updates are to come.

How Can I Show Support?

Past Patients

Facilities that need healthcare providers will typically begin a partnership with a staffing agency in order to have ‘more hands-on deck.’

If you break your agreement, this puts one less person on the schedule; and in nursing, this can make a huge difference in patient care delivery.


Hospital administrators, even the smallest token of recognition and appreciation can go a long way, and no, I don’t mean a pizza party.

Check out this example from Northwest Community Healthcare and how they honored their emergency nurses!

Your hard-working nurses should be rewarded for their sacrifice, dedication, and endurance throughout their career, but more importantly, the last two exhausting years!

Family Members of Nurses

For the past couple of years, work in the healthcare industry has not been easy, and the work-life balance…well there is none.

You may see your spouse less than you would like to, or maybe they had missed more of your children’s sporting events than they originally anticipated when they began this job, but it is a sacrifice they must make to save lives.

I know it is hard for you, and it is just as hard for them, too.

Just to be clear, Nurses Week 2022 should not be the only time you dedicate to showing them that you care and appreciate all the hard work they put into their career.

However, perhaps making them a spa appointment on their day off or tackling all the chores for the week to ensure they don’t have anything to worry about when they get home is a good start.

Like I said previously, a little can go a long way.
