Thank a nurse on the COVID-19 frontlines during National Nurses Week May 6-12



The world will celebrate the nursing profession from May 6, National Nurses Day, to May 12, the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale. This is your chance to show your appreciation for their dedication in the fight against coronavirus as well as the work they do to keep us healthy all year long.

Nurses are taking on tremendous responsibilities throughout the evolving COVID-19 crisis.
