In honor of the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale, the American Nurses Association has announced that 2020 will be honored as the Year of the Nurse and Midwife. The ANA plans to celebrate 2020 by “engaging with nurses, thought leaders and consumers in a variety of ways that promote nursing excellence, infuse leadership and foster innovation.” This initiative includes expanding National Nurses Week from May 6-12 to the entire month of May.
NACNS supports this initiative to elevate nurses and applauds the ANA for this celebration.
