We dedicate the second week of Nurses Month to recognizing nurses past and present. On Monday, May 11 is Remembrance Day as we take a moment from our day to honor our health heroes – nurses and health care workers who have passed away during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tuesday is the 200th Anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. Get to know the founder of modern medicine better through our interactive activities commemorating her accomplishments. Think you know her already, take our trivia quiz and find out! During Week 2, you can also read first-hand accounts from nurses working on the frontlines, what motivates them to continue to serve their patients, and what the profession means to them. You will also be able to see the faces of nursing through the amazing photographs they have submitted from around the world. Feeling inspired? submit your own story or photo to our gallery. Do you have a tribute you would like to share about a special nurse or just wish to recognize nurses in general? Complete the form on our recognition page and feel the love we have for nurses from the posts submitted by other visitors. Our second week is packed with activities, stories and tributes to commemorate all that nurses and the nursing profession has done for health care.

Nurse Stories & Photos
Sharing stories is empowering. It gives us the ability to influence others, build empathy, inspire action, and transform opinions. Nurses’ stories are especially powerful. Sharing your experiences can help promote greater understanding of the breadth and diversity of the profession and how, as nurses, we improve health and deliver high-quality health care.
