The second Monday in May of each year is National Nurses Week. It is a time to celebrate all that our nursing professionals do every day and to pay tribute to their dedication. Nurses make up a large part of America’s healthcare workforce, providing help in the form of hospital stays, checkups and other services to patients who can’t speak for themselves. It is important that all Americans to celebrate this special holiday. Here are some things that you can do on this day:
Get Together with Your Patients – Not just for nurses, but for anyone who care about your community, it is important that we all get out and meet with our patients. This can include retirees, teens or young adults. While old people may think that gathering on this day is only for old people, and that they don’t need to be out and about, it is actually a great opportunity to meet and greet new patients. National Nurses Week is also a great way to increase community awareness of nurses. Let your friends, neighbors and co-workers know about what you’re doing.
Give Back to the Community – One of the best ways to contribute to your community is through volunteer work. There are so many ways to help out. If you’re a registered nurse, start by volunteering at a local hospital. If you have a special interest, such as child development or cancer research, help out in these areas as well. Hospitals need volunteers every year, and you can make a real difference in the lives of others while still enjoying yourself!
Write a Letter to the Editor – Contact a local newspaper editor and express your opinion on an important issue. Most newspapers publish letters written by customers, and you might even find that your writing is reviewed and accepted for publication. You can write from home, too; all you need is an Internet connection. Some editors will even edit your letter for free.

Volunteer at a hospitalized or assisted living facility – Many senior centers and hospitals ask for volunteers for various positions, such as doing housekeeping or cleaning. Look for jobs at nursing homes, doctor’s offices, and other facilities. You can make quite a bit of money doing these jobs, especially in the springtime when the demand for nurses is higher. You’ll get a lot more practice doing these kinds of tasks, too. You’ll be able to give back to your community and gain valuable experience that you can apply to a new position or career later on.
