Nurses Week 2020 Hero.jpg Nurses Week 2020 Hero.jpg

National Nurses Week

May 6-12, 2020

The nursing field has shifted drastically over the past few decades. New nurses are expected to have graduated with a specific skill set that emphasizes diagnosis and assessment, safe patient-centered care, and adaptability in the workplace.

A generation ago, nurses acted as caretakers for the healthcare team and completed tasks assigned by physicians. Today, nurses must balance an emphasis on compassion with strong decision-making skills and leadership skills. And, they do this while upholding a strong advocacy for the patient’s best interests and working to prevent patient harm.

The American Nurses Association (ANA) has recognized 2020 as the “Year of the Nurse” in celebration of the robust contributions that nurses make in healthcare. During Nurses Week, Laerdal would like to join in the celebration and thank all nurses, past and present, for making nursing the profession that it is today.
