National Nurses Week will be observed May 6-12 and promote the theme “Nursing: the Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit.” It is sponsored by the American Nurses Association, which has declared 2017 the “Year of the Healthy Nurse.”

In conjunction with a week's worth of suggested activities, recognitions and highlights, the ANA is also offering a free webinar, “A Nurse's Guide to Preventing Compassion Fatigue, Moral Distress, and Burnout.” The event promises to “to infuse meaning, joy and restoration” into nurses' work and personal lives.
