Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: April 26, 2024 05:19 PM
From: Senator Judy Ward and Sen. Maria Collett
To: All Senate members
Subject: Nurses Week Resolution
In the near future, we plan to introduce a resolution declaring May 6-12, 2024, as "Nurses Week" in Pennsylvania.
"National Nurses Week" begins May 6 and ends May 12 each year, in conjunction with Florence Nightingale's birthday.
Each May, we come together to promote the importance of Nurses Week. It highlights the numerous ways nurses are working to transform health care across the Commonwealth. Our dedicated nursing professionals are working diligently to meet the health care needs of our Commonwealth and deserve to be recognized for this commitment.

We saw that nurses worked tirelessly on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure that people receive necessary care. It is vital that we use “Nurses Week” to reach out and celebrate the nurses at work in the Commonwealth and thank them for their dedication and commitment to providing excellent patient care.
With more than 228,000 registered nurses in the Commonwealth, they represent Pennsylvania’s largest segment of health care providers.
Please join us by co-sponsoring this resolution.
