Mnurse Appreciation Day
Mnurse????? hmmm…. Nope! This is not a spelling mistake. Male nurses are called Mnurses. National Nurses Day is the first day of what is known as National Nurses Week. While Male Nurses are often called mnurse there really is no mnurse appreciation day specifically. National Nurses Week runs from May 6th to May 12th every year. This tradition of thanking our nurses for the work that they do for us has been going on since the 1950’s. During National Nurses Week, there is also National Student Nurses Day. National Nurses Week is a federally recognized holiday, thanks to a resolution that was finally passed by Congress in 1982.
During National Nurses Week, people honor nurses with things like parades and banquets. These are special times when people take the time to thank nurses and mnurses around the world for their contribution to our well-being and continued health. Nurses do a thankless and demanding job sometimes, and this week is only their well deserved reward.
There is no particular day that is called Male Nurse Appreciation Day yet. There is a Student Nurse Appreciation day that is celebrated midway through National Nurses Week. Male nurses are starting to make their presence known in nursing, and people are starting to get used to the idea. Look for National Male Nurse Appreciation day coming soon to a celebration near you. There’s still plenty of time for next year.
