Following National Nurses Week, the American Health Care Association (AHCA) founded National Skilled Nursing Care Week (NSNCW) as a time to recognize skilled nursing care centers across the country, who provide dedicated services and care for seniors and individuals with disabilities.
National Skilled Nursing Care Week began on Mother’s Day, May 13th, and ends on Saturday, May 19th. The theme selected by AHCA for 2018 is “Celebrating Life’s Stories”, which “serves as
a tribute to life’s most significant events, relationships and experiences that shape the unique perspectives of residents, families, staff, and volunteers in long term and post-acute care. “
As you celebrate National Skilled Nursing Care Week, take some time to Celebrate Life’s Stories with your loved ones.

A Time To Honor All Nurses
National Nurses Week, May 6th to May 13th, is recognized by the American Nurses Association as a time to honor nurses across the country and celebrate their valuable role in healthcare, while educating the public on the profession.
Gallup polls show that “the public has rated nursing as the most honest and ethical profession for the past 16 years” (American Nurses Association).
This year’s theme is Nurses: Inspire, Innovate, Influence. From the Affinity Health Services team, we thank all of the nurses we have the pleasure of working with each and every day. We salute our team of clinical nurse consultants Angela Huffman, Dana Heitzenrater, and Tammy Lucas-Coleman for their dedication and leadership in their profession.
There are a number of organizations and restaurants that offer special discounts during National Nurses Week.
