National Nurses Week 2019 | Celebrate Nursing with CAE

| Roxanne Blanford

National Nurses Week (May 6 - May 12) was established in 1993 by the American Nurses Association (ANA) as an annual recognition event in the United States.

It begins on National Nurses Day and concludes on the birthday of Florence Nightingale.*  The chief aim is to elevate recognition of the vast contributions and positive impact of America’s 4 million registered nurses. 

Celebrate Nurses All Year Long

CAE Healthcare welcomes this invaluable week-long opportunity to draw focus to the important contributions in healthcare made by nurses the world over. We're also looking forward to using this time to bring necessary attention to the many ways that human patient simulation training enables student nurses and educators, allied health professionals and physicians, veteran and new nursing practitioners to achieve better performance, improved outcomes, and increased patient safety throughout the healthcare continuum.
