Across the AF, registered nurses, medical technicians saluted

National Nurse/Technician Week runs from May 6 to 12.

On May 6 the 412th Medical Group is celebrating National Nurses Week, which is held May 6 to 12 every year.

The purpose of the weeklong celebration is to raise awareness of the value of nursing and help educate the public about the role nurses play in meeting the healthcare needs of the American people.

In honor of the commitment and tireless effort of the nearly 18,000 Air Force nurses and medical technicians, the 412th MDG is proud to recognize nursing personnel everywhere on this particular week for the quality work they provide. These dedicated professionals promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of Air Force beneficiaries seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Every year, National Nurses Week begins on May 6, known as Nurses Recognition Day, and ends on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of nursing as a modern profession.

Traditionally, National Nurses Week is devoted to highlighting the diverse ways in which nursing personnel, who comprise the largest healthcare profession, are working to improve healthcare.

From bedside nursing in medical centers, hospitals and outpatient clinics, the depth and breadth of the nursing profession is meeting the expanding health care needs of the Air Force community.
