ANA Nurses Month 2023

Happy National Nurses Month from the W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing and Health Professions!

Whether you are considering a career in nursing or have spent years in the profession, you don’t need to be reminded of the enormous impact nurses, like you, have in the current healthcare environment. YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

To those who are considering a career in the field or are working toward becoming a registered nurse, our profession is waiting for you. For nurses already in the profession, we celebrate your fearlessness, dedication, and resolve. My sincere hope is that your work with fellow nurses and other members of the healthcare team, patients, and their families fuels your sense of pride in the profession. YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

During National Nurses Month and every day, we extend a heartfelt ‘thank you’ as you continue to provide the highest level of care to your patients. During this month we celebrate our potential students, enrolled students, mentors, and nursing alumni who are transforming healthcare, moving to the forefront of the profession, and inspiring our staff every day.

Let us never consider ourselves finished nurses… we must be learning all of our lives.”

Florence Nightingale

This year, the American Nurses Association theme for National Nurses Month is YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Each week is dedicated to the four focus areas of Self-Care, Recognition, Professional Development, and Community Engagement. Please join us on our blog each week as we post a new message from our mentors addressing each area.

On behalf of the W. Cary Edwards School of Nursing and Health Professions, I send you my very best wishes, deepest thanks, and celebrate you during National Nurses Month and every day. Thank you for serving as a beacon of hope and a source of healing in these challenging times.
