National Nursing Week is Monday, May 6, to Sunday, May 12, 2019.
The theme is Nurses: A Voice to Lead – Health for All. It was developed by the International Council of Nurses (ICN). According to ICN, A Voice to Lead reflects the fact that “every nurse has a story and every story has the potential to improve the health system and enable individuals and communities to achieve their highest attainable standard of health. From these insights comes the power for change.” Health for All means “not just the availability of health services, but a complete state of physical and mental health that enables a person to lead a socially and economically productive life.”
