2023 National Nurses Month Celebration

May 1 - May 31, 2023

The impact you make on health care is unparalleled. For the past 3 years and counting, ANA has championed a month-long celebration that allows for greater opportunities to promote understanding and appreciation of the invaluable contributions of nurses like you!

You truly make a difference by influencing and shaping health policy decisions that ensure all Americans 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.

Weekly Focus Areas

National Nurses Month is divided into four weekly focus areas — Self-Care, Recognition, Professional Development, and Community Engagement. Take a minute to review each focus area taking place through the month of May. Don't forget to save each week to your calendar. You are not going to want to miss a thing!
