This week in Nurses’ Week and the critical role nurses have played throughout the global pandemic has been nothing short of monumental. Nurses’ Week 2021 runs from May 6-12 this year. Not only that, but the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has helped people across the U.S. realize the integral role nurses play in keeping our society functioning and healthy.
