Empowering Nurses: Resources for Success

National Nurses Week kicks off on May 6th and culminates on Florence Nightingale’s birthday, May 12th. This week serves as a dedicated time to recognize the extraordinary contributions nurses and the nursing profession make to our communities. As the American Nurses Association (ANA) website details, the celebration has since expanded to encompass the entire month of May, acknowledging the vast array of roles nurses play and the profound impact they have on the lives they touch.

As we celebrate National Nurses Month, we’re here to support you! Explore Lane Library‚Äôs collection of valuable nursing resources. Our highlighted resources this month are:
