May is a great time to start your health care education. Few months during the year celebrate the hard work, dedication and importance of health care than May. There are 11+ days honoring awareness of health related issues and each deserves attention, especially from those who are in the health care industry or are studying to make health care a career. Here are a few to be aware of:
- National Arthritis Month
- Asthma and Food Allergy Awareness Month
- Brain Cancer /Tumor Action Month
- Osteoporosis Awareness & Prevention Month
- Melanoma Skin Cancer Awareness Month
- Lupus Awareness Month
- Stroke Awareness Month
- Bladder Cancer Awareness Month
- Mental Health Awareness Month
- Tuberous Sclerosis Awareness Month
- Celiac Disease Awareness Month
National Nurses Week.
Another time to honor is National Nurses Day which actually becomes a full week of awareness. Celebrations and receptions are held across the United States to honor the work of nurses from May 6th to May 12th.
May 12, the final day of National Nurses Week, is the birthday of Florence Nightingale (1820-1910). The English nurse became known as the founder of professional nursing, especially due to her pioneering work during the Crimean War (1853-1856). Due to her habit of making rounds at night, Nightingale became known as “The Lady with the Lamp”.
National Nurses Week was first observed in October 1954, the 100th anniversary of Nightingale’s mission to Crimea. May 6 was introduced as the date for the observance in 1982.
