Celebrate National Nurses Week 2021

Our 2021 National Nurses Week tribute video celebrates nurses and calls attention to everything they have endured during the past year. With courage, compassion, and resilience the 4 million+ RNs and LPNs in the U.S. and the nurses across the globe persevered during the COVID-19 pandemic to care for the rest of us. National Nurses week is celebrated May 6-12, but we will honor nurses all month long and beyond. Please take a moment to watch this video, sponsored by South University, and share it with nurses, family members, and friends.

Thank you, nurses. Happy National Nurses Week and Nurses Month!

    As a fellow LPN the comment “ With courage, compassion, and resilience the 4 million+ nurses and LPNs in the U.S.”

    LPNs are Nurses so why separate the title out from the word nurses?

    Hiya! Just a reminder that LPNs are nurses. In your thank you, you separate them from the overall umbrella of “nurses”. Thanks!

      Thank you for your feedback. You are correct, the video and subtitles should have specified ‘RNs and LPNs,’ or just “nurses”. Our intent was to be celebrate and call attention to all the professionals under the ‘nursing’ umbrella — to be inclusive. We definitely appreciate the contributions of LPNs, as well as RNs, and wish you all a Happy Nurses Week.

    I think how the information is written nicely, except LPNs are nurses too and it should not have been written like LPNs are an afterthought.

    I would just like to say, that Licensed Practical NURSES, are nurses too. If you feel the need to differentiate, perhaps you could say RNs and LPNs instead of nurses and LPNs.

        Thank you for the response to the concerns of those who like myself, are a Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurse. From LPNs to NPs, we are all nurses doing our part to help our #1, the patient. Thank you for your appreciation!!

    If yall outraged about LPNs not recognized as nurses, What About Nursing Assistants and Nurse Technicians? The jobs are different yes, but they are all part of the holistic Nursing Care a patient needs. 😤😔🤔
