National Nurses Week 2020

PG Nurses Week.png

Join the Purdue University Global School of Nursing during Nurses Week as we recognize the important contributions today’s nurses are making on the frontlines of health care. 

This year’s event is extra special as we will be honoring the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale, the mother of modern nursing, on May 12. 


Sponsored by the American Nurses Association (ANA), Nurses Week takes place during the worldwide “Year of the Nurse,” an ongoing celebration of excellence, leadership, and innovation in nursing.


Send eCards to Your Favorite Nurses 

During Nurses Week (and beyond), we encourage you to send eCards to show nurses how much you value their tireless work. Simply choose your eCard, download it as a PDF, and attach it to your email. Select an eCard to download and share.
