Each year the USA sets aside May 6-12 to celebrate the efforts of the 4 million registered nurses in the USA. The choice to launch National Nurses Week on May 6 is no coincidence as it is Florence Nightingale’s birthday. She is widely considered the founder of modern nursing. National Nurses Week 2019 is designated with the theme of “4 Million Reasons to Celebrate.”

If you dream of working in the USA as a nurse where you are held in high regard and honored each year for your profession, we encourage you to register with PassportUSA for all of the advice and assistance you will need to make your #AmericanDream a reality.

PassportUSA would also like to extend a special thanks to the hundreds of RNs currently working for us at healthcare facilities across the United States. You deserve special recognition for your efforts to inspire, innovate, and influence every day!

Show your support for U.S. nurses and the great work they do by sending a tweet or post of appreciation with the hashtag #nursesweek.
