2020 Designated Internationally as " YEAR OF THE NURSE"--National and State Activities Planned
ANA Gears up for Global "Year of the Nurse" in 2020.
ANA announces its intent to elevate and celebrate the essential, robust contributions of nurses as the world recognized 2020 as the "Year of the Nurse." Given the wide range of nursing roles in the U.S., ANA will promote inclusivity and wide engagement of all nurses. ANA will expand national Nurses Week to a month-long celebration in May to expand opportunities to elevate and celebrate nursing.
The World Health Assembly, the governing body of the World Health Organization, also declared 2020 the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, in honor of the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth. This celebration offers a platform to recognize past and present nurse leaders globally, raise the visibility of the nursing profession in policy dialogue and invest in the development and increased capacity of the workforce.
Nurses are encouraged to use #yearofthenurse and follow ANA Enterprise [nursingworld.org] on social media as we celebrate nurses in 2020.
