Happy Nurses Week 2022 from the team at CareerStaff! We are thrilled to honor, recognize, celebrate and thank nurses for all that they do each and every day for their patients, peers, and communities.

Celebrations kick off on May 6th, National Nurses Day which spotlights the dedicated and hardworking nursing professionals, and concludes on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Since 1993, the American Nurses Association (ANA) marked this week as the annual celebration of National Nurses Week. However, this week-long celebration has grown into Nurses Month to honor the diverse roles of nurses and the positive impact they have on our lives.

Celebrating Nurses Week 2022

At CareerStaff, we know that nurses are the heart of healthcare and patient care, and we recognize the critical and unparalleled role you play in the health and well-being of our society. We also know you’re more than a nurse…. you’re a parent, a daughter, a son, an explorer, a mentor, and a difference maker.

To honor and recognize the difference makers and who they are beyond the bedside, each week this month we will cover the below  American Nurses Association (ANA) topics “to promote understanding and appreciation of the invaluable contributions of nurses” across the country.

  • Week 1: Self-Care (May 1-7): Cultivating and maintaining optimal mental health and physical well-being are so important. Follow along on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for self-care tips!
  • Week 2: Recognition (May 8-14): Recognizing and honoring nurses are heroes, innovators, and leaders not only in healthcare systems but in our communities as well.
  • Week 3: Professional Development (May 15-21): Focus on professional development and steps to excel and lead in your nursing career. 
  • Week 4: Community Engagement (May 22-31): Engaging with the community virtually or in-person and helping educate the community about the important work nurses do.

We ask our community to join us in saying thank you to all the amazing RNs, LPNs, LVNs, and every other nursing professional in our network, and beyond. Follow along this month as we spotlight, honor, recognize, support, and celebrate those in our network who are more than a nurse… but a difference maker in the lives of so many each and every day.
