Nurses Month Flowers
National Nurses Week is held yearly from May 6th to the 12th. For the last couple of years, the entire month of May has been named National Nurses Month. It’s the perfect time to send a lovely bouquet to the nurse in your life. Show your appreciation for their dedication and express your thanks with the gift of flowers.
Celebrate Our Nurses
These are our school nurses and home health practitioners, the ones staffing the frontlines in our hospitals and assisting our doctors and specialists. They might be taking care of a loved one in a care facility or patching up our first responders. From nurse-practitioners to mid-wives, it’s time to celebrate all our nurses. They deserve our greatest recognition for everything they have done during the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to do every day.
Send Flowers for Nurses Week
Do you have a friend or family member who is a nurse? Have you or a loved one recently been tended to by a nurse in a hospital, nursing home, or another setting? One of the best ways to honor these special health care professionals is to send them fresh flowers to thank them for their service, and a farm-fresh Bouq is perfect for the occasion.
WHY DO WE CELEBRATE NURSES IN MAY?
May 12th was Florence Nightingale’s birthday. She was considered by many as the founder of modern nursing practices, and she earned the nickname “The Lady with the Lamp” for tending wounds, training nurses, and checking on patients even in the dark of night during the Crimean War.
For many years, the U.S. Department of Health and Welfare lobbied for a National Nurses Day to honor Ms. Nightingale and all the other nurses. In 1982, National Nurses Day was created on May 6th in honor of Ms. Nightingale. From there, National Nurses Week was designated to be celebrated yearly from May 6th to May 12th.
WHAT’S THE THEME FOR NATIONAL NURSES Month IN 2022?
Last year, the American Nurses Association (ANA) announced a month of celebration for everything our nurses have done and continue to do. Since the 1980s, National Nurses Week has been celebrated with a theme. Some previous themes have been based around mental health, healthy aging, and honoring school nurses. Each week during National Nurses Month will have a different theme.
May 1 - May 9: Self Care
May 10 - May 16: Recognition
May 17 - May 23: Professional Development
May 24 - May 31: Community Engagement
