When is Nurses Week 2024?

National Nurses Week is from May 6-12, 2024, with a theme of “Nurses Make the Difference.” Moreover, the American Nurses Association (ANA) hosts Nurses Week each year to acknowledge, appreciate, and thank clinicians like you throughout the country.

At CareerStaff, we are thrilled to also join in on the week-long celebration of difference-makers. As nurses, we honor the compassionate care you make towards patients and communities each and every shift!

Celebrating Nurses Week with Self-Care

Whether treating yourself to tasty freebies or exploring the best discounts this week, our CareerStaff team hopes nurses take time to celebrate the difference you make.

To help, give yourself the same care and compassion you extend to your patients by:

Checking in with “You”

You know how to check in with patients to assess their needs. However, what are you doing to manage your stress and care for your needs? Take the HealthyNurse Survey assessment to help — check it out here!

Creating a Gratitude Practice

Positive affirmations and gratitude can be some of the most powerful ways to practice self-care. Remember: when we make gratitude a habit, we can remember to enjoy the beauty, success, and opportunities around us.

Pro Tip: ANA has a 9-part Gratitude Podcast Mini-Series to help you learn how to develop a daily gratitude practice!

Finding an Outlet to Release Stress

It’s easy to focus all our time and energy on our careers, especially when we do something that truly matters. However, work-life balance is necessary. So, whether it’s an old hobby, exercise class, or creative outlet, find ways to let go of the day’s stress.
