Henry Ford Nursing

National Nurses Week

Often described as an art and a science, nursing is a profession comprised of dedicated people with varied interests, strengths and passions that align with the many opportunities the profession offers. Nurses work in hospitals, emergency rooms, school based clinics, and in patients' homes, to name a few. They have many roles – from staff nurse to educator to nurse practitioner and nurse researcher – and they serve all of these roles with passion for the profession and with a strong commitment to patient safety and evidence based care.

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6 through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. This week, Henry Ford Health System honors all or our nurses and recognizes seven outstanding nursing representatives with the Clara Ford Nursing Excellence Award.
