Nurses Week

Nurses Week 2021 banner; Unified, Reliable, Ready.  Nurses Week.

Since the American Revolution, nurses have provided unique contributions to military medicine during peace time and conflict. Today, we recognize the impact of nursing during COVID-19 and reinforce the unified health care team’s role in support of current Department of Defense (DoD) priorities to protect our service members, their families and our workforce; maintain military readiness to defend the nation and its interests; and support the national COVID-19 response.

About National Nurses Week, May 6-12, 2021

Military and civilian nurses serve leading roles to maintain military health and readiness and effect transformative changes occurring in military medicine now and in the future. The roles nurses play goes beyond serving in a hospital and clinic, where they often connect patients and other medical personnel. They can be found in research labs, in classrooms, and evaluating informatics and performing analysis. Each area of expertise contributes to advancing the mission and impact of the MHS enterprise.

After over a year of living in a pandemic environment, nurses have continued to deliver uninterrupted levels of service and health care. We recognize, appreciate, and invest in nurses across the MHS for their service as a front line of defense against COVID-19.
