Nurses make a difference. This month we recognize the vast contributions and positive impact of America’s 4 million registered nurses. National Nurses Week honors our nation’s nurse heroes and their contributions to the health and well-being of our communities. Nurses make a difference as trusted advocates who ensure individuals, families, and populations receive quality patient care and services. They influence and shape health policy decisions that ensure all Americans have access to high-quality health care.
Whether it is a national health emergency or routine daily care, nurses’ vital contributions impact the health and well-being of our communities.
