National Nurses Week – May 6th-12th
Nurses Week is a celebration of all the nurses worldwide for the work they do, providing life-saving, compassionate care.
It’s a week we have to thank the nursing assistants, practical nurses, and registered nurses who care for us.

Celebrating the Inclusion of All Nurses
This year, we want to make sure ALL nurses are being recognized and celebrated. That is why IntelyCare is changing the name to Nursing Professionals Week. Whether you are a CNA, LPN, RN, or NP, this week is for you. Your dedication, compassion, and hard work do not go unnoticed.

Creating Experiences to Remember
Instead of giving our nursing professionals the same old cold pizza party and a “Healthcare Heroes” banner, we asked what would really make them feel appreciated. They told us that they really want the space to actually unwind and rejuvenate and some time to focus on their education and careers. We are hosting the Intely@Sea Cruise to give our nursing professionals exactly that. On the cruise, they will get 5 days to step back from the extreme pressure and stress of their jobs and have access to free CE courses from top subject matter experts.
Standing with Nurses
We acknowledge that Nursing Professionals Week is not just about celebrating, but also about continuing the hard work of advocacy on behalf of nurses. The 200th anniversary of nursing as a profession was in 2020. Due to COVID-19, there was no celebration and it was postponed again in 2021. The time is now to recognize the sacrifice nursing professionals have made, especially those who lost their lives while caring for others during the pandemic. The Nurses March is pushing for action to commemorate and memorialize the work of our nurses. You can read the complete mission statement here. IntelyCare is sponsoring the event and will be on-site to stand with our nursing professionals. We’ll also have a statement from our Chief Clinical Officer, Rebecca Love MSN, RN, FIEL, in support of our nursing professionals.

Nursing professionals walk an average 4-5 miles per shift. IntelyCare has partnered with Gales Shoes to support you with every step you take. We will be giving away 300 pairs of shoes! The contest runs through May 21st, don’t miss your chance!

How Did Nurses Week Start?
National Nurses Week can be traced back to 1953 when it was proposed as a single day by Dorothy Sutherland of the US Department of Health. Nurse Day was first celebrated in May of 1954 to honor Florence Nightingale’s (pictured right) work in the Crimean War.
But it wasn’t until May 6th of 1982 that a National Recognition Day for Nurses was finally officially declared, thanks to an effort led by the American Nurses Association. By 1993, the ANA Board of Directors agreed on May 6-12th as the annual dates for Nurses Week. Fun Fact: Florence Nightingale’s birthday is May 12th!
