Since the novel coronavirus pandemic, honoring the nation’s nurses is more important than ever. OR today magazine joins the American Nurses Association (ANA) and other in celebrating these men and women this May as part of Nurses Month.
“Whether it is a national health emergency or routine daily care, nurses’ vital contributions impact the health and well-being of our communities, which is why ANA selected the theme for May as Nurses Make a Difference. To honor nurses and support the nursing profession, ANA will promote weekly themes and activities. While continued physical distancing may limit our face-to-face activities, we encourage everyone to think of creative ways to virtually engage,” the ANA website states.
The month will be divided into four weekly focuses – Self-Care, Recognition, Professional Development, and Community Engagement. For more information, click here.
