It’s with a certain degree of eye-rolling that we announce that it’s Mental Health Awareness Month, Dear People. The irony is not lost on us.
That’s right, people. Nursing Greatness is not news to us, and we are no fly-by-night fans. Every year, we celebrate Nurses Week, which starts on May 6th and goes through the 12th (which, not coincidentally, is the birthday of the redoubtable, Badass Nurse for All Seasons, Florence Nightingale).
Did you know that 2021 marks the 19th year in a row that nurses were voted the most honest, ethical, and trusted profession in the U.S.? How’s that for a winning streak?
