Here’s a feel-good plug for your social media that could bring in a few additional sales this week — particularly among health care professionals (and patients who have benefited from top-notch care).
National Nurses Week is May 6 through May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. The weeklong event recognizes the important role nurses play in the health care system. (Within the week, National School Nurse Day is celebrated today, May 11.)
Fun facts to include in your posts, courtesy of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Nursing:
