Nurses Week 2020: Freebies and Deals
Written by Joshua Kleinstreuer
Wednesday marked National Nurses Day and the start of National Nurses Week 2020. May 12 marks International Nurses Day across the globe, which is also Florence Nightengale’s birthday.
The first Nurses Week was observed between October 11 through October 16, 1954, to mark the 100th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s mission to Crimea, according to the American Nurses Association.
