2023 National Nurses Month Celebration

May 1 - May 31, 2023

The impact you make on health care is unparalleled. The American Nurses Association is kicking off its annual month-long celebration that allows for greater opportunities to promote understanding and appreciation of the invaluable contributions of nurses like you!

You bring vast knowledge and expertise to every health care setting across a wide range of specialties, serving your patients and communities throughout the continuum of life and care. You truly make a difference by influencing and shaping health policy decisions that ensure all people have access to high-quality, affordable healthcare coverage.

That's why we've selected the evergreen theme, You Make a Difference, to honor your varying nursing roles as well as the positive impact you have on everyone's lives.

Announcing our first FIVE nurses to win the Amazon.com gift card giveaway:

Amelia Lizarraga
Peter Farr

Congratulations! We will reach out to the winners via email to claim their prize.

If your name is not listed above, you still can win an Amazon.com gift card. Another announcement will be made by June 1. There are still five more nurses who will win!
