“Nurses Week” is an annual effort by the American Nurses Association to thank the dedicated individuals of the nursing profession and recognize their contribution to the wellbeing of Americans.

Nurses Week takes place annually starting May 6th and always concludes on May 12th, the birthday of Florence Nightingale. This year’s theme was “Ethical Practice, Quality Care”. CHI employees joined the campaign, along with the New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) to applaud the work nurses do on behalf of the nation’s homeless.
