Governor Inslee declares May to be Nurses Month

For the second year in a row, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee has declared May to be Nurses Month, recognizing the nation’s largest health care profession and honoring the critical and life-saving role that they play around the state, country, and world through the pandemic.

The UW School of Nursing joins the American Nurses Association and Washington State Nurses Association in celebrating National Nurses Month. This recognition adds to the growing national and international support for the role nurses play in our healthcare system, our community, and in combating the COVID-19 pandemic on the front lines.
