NATIONAL STUDENT NURSE DAY
As part of National Nurses Week, Student Nurses are honored on May 8.
Nurse Day proposed in 1953 by Dorothy Sutherland of the U.S. Department of Health and while a proclamation never came National Nurse Week was observed the following year.
Student Nurses are at the cutting edge of technology, learning the latest life-saving techniques while at the same time practicing skills in programs that have been built upon medical science.
National Student Nurses Day celebrates these students and their achievements.
