Celebrate Nursing 2017

National Nurses Week 2017

UT Health San Antonio’s School of Nursing is joining the American Nurses Association in celebrating National Nursing Week May 1-5. This year’s theme is “Nursing: the Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit.”

National Nurses Week, normally celebrated May 6-12, will be celebrated early to include student participation. The purpose is to raise awareness of the value of nursing and help educate the public about the role nurses play in meeting the health care needs of the American people. There are nearly 3.1 million registered nurses nationwide who provide quality care seven days a week, 365 days a year.

The School of Nursing will be hosting a variety of events this week for nursing students, faculty and the public. At noon on Monday, May 1, San Antonio artist Sarah Castillo will speak on her exhibit, “Remedies for Remembering,” which will be on display in the School of Nursing through July 1. Her talk will be in NURS 1.102.

On Friday, May 5, in the Hurd Auditorium, Ann Bruce, Ph.D., RN,  of the University of Victoria, British Columbia, will deliver  the Huebner Lecture on “Contemplative Pedagogy: A Quiet Revolution in Nursing and Higher Education.”

From 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. May 5, there will be a student Research Day Poster Reception and promotion of professional nursing organizations located in the foyer.
