To all nurses–current, past, and future–happy National Nurses Month from AMOpportunities! This year’s theme, “You Make a Difference” truly epitomizes the work of nurses in the U.S. healthcare system and abroad.

The American Nurses Association (ANA) has broken down its celebration into four weekly focuses. For nursing trainees, the third week might be of the most interest. From May 15-21, the ANA will be focused on providing resources and information aimed to help”guide you in your professional development.”
