Nurses everywhere to be honored with 'their' week

National Nurses' Week kicks off Sunday with National Nurses' Day. The period will feature special presentations for nurses and local celebrations around the country, honoring their work.

The American Nurses Association will sponsor a free webinar for its members, “Emerging Technology and Its Impact on Nursing,” at 1 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday. The group also offers transferable logos (“Inspire, Innovate, Influence”), special merchandise for sale and recommendations how to honor and observe in a resources kit.

The annual week ends on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, who is credited with being the creator of modern, professional nursing.
