This day is considered to be the National Nurse Day or the National RN Recognition Day. This week of celebration and appraisal starts at May 6 and regularly ends at May 12, which is the day Florence Nightingale was born.

The American Nurses Association or ANA encourages and supports this huge event. It connects to the various districts and state nurses committees, independent health care institutions and companies, and educational facilities. The celebration is of a week-long in order to give chance to each of all the nurses with a variety of working schedules.

    The activities that are included in the week celebration are community events, education seminars, city and state proclamations and recognition and banquet dinners.

They also have some bonding time with their patients, administrators and doctors in order to better feel the ambiance of appreciation.
