National Nurses Week 2021 Gift Ideas NYFifth

National Nurses Week is celebrated every year from May 6 to May 12 to shine a spotlight on the incredible nurses across the country that have devoted their lives to the betterment of the lives of others. National Nurses Day is held annually on May 6 to raise awareness of the important role nurses play in society. It’s our time to recognize, appreciate, and invest in the nurses we know or work with every day as well as the entire nursing industry as whole.

The theme for IND 2021 is “Nurses: A Voice to Lead.” The sub-theme is “A Vision for Future Healthcare.” This theme reflects on the impact of COVID-19 on the health system and the nursing profession and how these might be affected into the future. Nurses, as the largest healthcare profession, must play an integral part in planning the future of healthcare.

Because of the global COVID-19 pandemic, nurses have sacrificed free time, lost sleep and risked their own well-being – all in the name of keeping us healthy. They have been doing heroic work, it’s the perfect opportunity to show our appreciation during this National Nurses Week.
