Nurses Week Toolkit: United In Service, Rooted in Strength

During National Nurses Week (May 6-12), the Military Health System tells the story of military medicine through the lens of nurses on the frontlines of health care. The 2022 Nurses Week theme, “United in Service, Rooted in Strength,” honors MHS nurses’ unwavering commitment to their patients, and the value they provide to the unified medical team in accomplishing their military medical mission.

During Nurses Week, we celebrate and share the stories of nurses across the MHS who are delivering world-class care every day. Visit the Nurses Week Spotlight for more information.
