“As a College, it is important for us to recognize the nursing community, and offer leisure activities that they can enjoy with their families outside of their day-to-day duties,” said USF College of Nursing Assistant Director of Alumni Relations, Edwin Hernandez.
National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6 through May 12 to celebrate nurses and the diverse ways America’s 3.1 million registered nurses work to save lives and to improve the health of millions of individuals.
