National Nurses Month 2020

Normally in early May we celebrate National Nurses Week, which traditionally ends on May 12, the birthday of nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale. This year, however, is Nightingale’s 200th birthday and we are honoring our nurses all month long.

Each week of Nurses Month will focus on a different theme, as illustrated by the four icons in the image: self-care, recognition, professional development, and community engagement.

The current health crisis has put the focus on nurses as critical members of the healthcare team–and of the community at large. We here in the Stony Brook Health Sciences Library recognize year-round how important nurses are. We are here to help you and support you, whether you are a clinical nurse in one of our hospitals or clinics, a nursing faculty member, or one of our nursing students.
