National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6, known as National Nurses Day, through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. Thinking about becoming a nurse? The American Nurses Association website is a useful resource. Canton Public Library has study guides for student nurses studying for the NCLEX-RN exam. Graduate nurses may find Resumes for Nursing Careers helpful. Thank a nurse in honor of Nurses week!
