We are once again celebrating nurses with National Nurses Day on May 12 and National Nurses Week May 6-12 in the United States and International Nurses Day on May 12 worldwide. The American Nurses Association (ANA) has designated 2017 as the “Year of the Healthy Nurse” and National Nurses Week: Celebrating Nurses Who Lead the Charge for Health and Wellness with a theme of Nursing: The Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit.
The International Council of Nurses (ICN) has selected Nurses: A Voice to Lead—Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as its 2017 theme. The individual themes may not appear to be as in sync with each other as they have been in the past, but the United Nations' SDGs encompass a broad range of global initiatives, and a connection can be found (www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals). The ANA and ICN celebrate nurses as people, leaders, and agents for change in healthcare delivery and outcomes.
