National Nurses Week raises awareness of the contributions of our nation’s nursing workforce. Traditionally, the week begins each year on May 6 and ends on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, who is widely considered to be the pioneer of modern-day nursing.
Encompass Health has more than 14,400 nurses in our national footprint, and more than 1,700 of them are certified rehabilitation registered nurses, demonstrating an even higher level of knowledge in their field. Their dedication to compassionate care is vital to the success of our patients.
