May is Nurses Month and the theme is Nurses Make a Difference to honor the varying roles of nurses and their positive impact on our lives. Nurses make a difference as trusted advocates who ensure individuals, families, and populations receive quality patient care and services.
Nurses make a difference by influencing and shaping health policy decisions that ensure all Americans have access to high-quality, affordable health care coverage. The impact of nurses on health care is unparalleled directly affecting the health and well-being of our society. Nurses are everywhere we live, work, play, learn, and worship, and in every health care setting providing care to millions of people.
