How to celebrate National Nursing Week



National Nursing Week takes place from May 9 to 15, 2022. The purpose of this special celebration is to bring awareness to governments, policymakers and the general public of the importance of nurses’ contributions to the well-being of society.


The theme of this year’s week-long celebration is #WeAnswerTheCall. This motto was chosen to highlight the variety of roles nurses play in the healthcare system. To celebrate National Nursing Week, the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) encourages Canadians to consider the impact nurses have had in their lives and those they love.


Consequently, they urge the public to share stories, pictures and expressions of thanks to nurses through social media, using the following hashtags:

#CNA2022

#WeAnswerTheCall

#IKnowANurse

#NationalNursingWeek

#IND2022

#Nurses2022

#VoiceToLead


Moreover, you can write a personal thank-you card to a nurse who has impacted your life. This is a simple way to make their day and ensure they feel appreciated for all their hard work.


The CNA also encourages nurses to use social media to showcase their various roles, work environments and those with whom they work. If you want to stay up to date on nursing in Canada, follow the CNA on social media.
