2015 National Nurses Week

National Nurses Week is May 6-12, 2015 and the American Nurses Association (ANA) and ONA would like to thank you for your service and dedication. 

Of course, at ONA, every week is Nurses Week! Oregon's 52,500 nurses make a difference in the lives of patients every single day, ensuring the highest quality care, promoting our profession and advocating for policies to improve the health of our citizens.

Nurses make a difference! For everything you do, every day and every week, we thank you.

ANA Resources for Celebrating National Nurses Week

National Nurses Week Declarations

Many officials understand the value of nurses and the work we do, so they have made local proclamations and resolutions honoring nurses and recognizing National Nurses Week. You can see the proclamations and resolutions below.

Celebration Events 

Facilities across Oregon are celebrating nurses in honor of National Nurses Week.  Here is a list of some of the celebrations that we know about so far.  If you know of any other celebrations, either at a facility or anywhere else, please let us know so we can add it to the list and honor all nurses.  Also, if you have had a celebration and would like to share photos from the event, please send them in (by sending them in you are agreeing to have them shared on the ONA website and that you have the rights to the image to share it).
