NATIONAL STUDENT NURSE DAY
National Student Nurse Day takes part in National Nurses Week on May 8th. The day honors student nurses as they pursue a career in medicine.
Student Nurses are at the cutting edge of technology, learning the latest life-saving techniques. At the same time, they are practicing skills in programs that have been built upon medical science. Each year, the demand for nurses grows. Now more than ever, the nursing field needs more people dedicated to the field of medicine. Their drive to care, learn, and specialize in nursing will make the difference in the lives of millions of individuals and the families who love them each year.
A registered nurse (RN) will attend four years of nursing school to attain a bachelor’s of science in nursing degree. Nurses also branch out into specialties advancing their careers into other areas of medicine.
National Student Nurses Day celebrates these students and their achievements.
