The American Nurses Association (ANA) is expanding its annual recognition and celebration of nurses from a week-long event to a month-long observance again in 2021. With the theme of "Nurses Make a Difference," each week during Nurses Month will have a specific focus:
- Self-Care (May 1-9)
- Recognition (May 10-16)
- Professional Development (May 17-23)
- Community Engagement (May 24-31)
In honor of Nurses Month, ANA will host a free webinar entitled "Redefining Nursing — Reaffirming Our Practice."
The Gratitude Symposium
During the month of May, 45 experts are joining together to provide healthcare workers with a series of free presentations meant to thank, teach, and inspire those in health care.
