May 6 - 12, 2017

National Student Nurses Day : May 8, 2017

International Nurses Day : May 12, 2017

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale's birthday.

As of 2003, National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week (May 6-12) each year. International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world on May 12th of each year.

The theme for National Nurses Week in 2016 was Culture of Safety: It Starts With YOU.

Below is a partial list of outstanding Nurses Week Speakers from Capitol City Speakers Bureau who address Healthcare issues and topics relevant to the Nursing profession:

Kristin Baird, RN : With 30 years' experience in patient care, health care marketing, business development and administration, Kristin is a talented speaker and consultant with a passion for service excellence. She helps nurses to reconnect to their personal passion for nursing. Using stories and writing cues, Baird challenges nurses to rejuvenate themselves to rekindle their passion and form a stronger connection to purpose.
Kathleen Bartholomew, RN : Before turning to healthcare as a career in 1994, Kathleen held positions in marketing, business, communications and teaching. It was these experiences that allowed her to look at nursing from a different perspective and speak poignantly to the issues that effect nurses today. Her thoughtful presentations inter-laced with research reawaken every nurse's commitment and love of nursing.
Kathy Brown, RN : Kathy brings a dynamic and fun approach to each of her customized presentations. You will be informed, inspired, and energized with Kathy’s creative learning style. Her background as a communications coordinator, development and training specialist, R.N., corporate recruiter, author, and business owner brings a wealth of information turned into practical steps for empowered living.
Karyn Buxman, RN : Karyn Buxman is serious about humor! One of the leading national experts on therapeutic humor, she combines her skills as a health professional, storyteller and humorist to wow audiences across the nation. Associations, organizations and institutions everywhere are adopting Karyn's therapeutic humor as standard "operating" procedure.
Donna Cardillo, RN : Known as "The Inspiration Nurse" Donna is a powerhouse of energy, wisdom, empowerment, humor and solid content. She's the "Dear Donna" columnist at and Expert Blogger at Donna has been referred to as positive force of nature who lights a path for others to follow.
Kathy Dempsey, RN, CSP : Her "signature story" is her transformation as an ER/trauma nurse who became the first health care worker in America to be diagnosed positive for AIDS as a result of workplace exposure. Months later, all tests returned negative. A miracle or medical error? No one is able to explain. The 3 months that Kathy lived with that traumatic diagnosis was a life-altering experience.
Deb Gauldin, RN : First and foremost, Deb Gauldin is a wife, mother, sister and daughter. She has always been a champion for women's causes. That's just who she is. She was turned down after applying for the U.S. Peace Corps at age 10, and tried to join the NAACP at 13. Deb moved through the ranks of health care one step and conviction at a time.
Liz Jazwiec, RN : Liz reminds us all of the power of nursing and talks about our strength as individuals and as a profession to make a difference in people's lives. Liz knows the commitment necessary to make work a better place for you and encourages all of us to celebrate the compassion amongst all of us and to focus on all the things that are right about nursing.
Connie Merritt, RN : Connie has a reputation for presenting breakthrough information with step-by-step tactical teachings that are well-seasoned with energy and humor. She helps people and organizations make vital adjustments to manage the multiple decisions and requests being placed in all areas of life - especially during these do-more-with-less economic times.
Kaye Lani Rafko-Wilson, RN : After winning the Miss Michigan pageant of 1987, Kaye Lani was crowned the 61st Miss America in 1988. She holds the distinction of being the very first Registered Nurse to become Miss America. Since being crowned, she has used her celebrity to focus attention on the profession of nursing, hospice programs and critical health care issues including cancer and AIDS.
Faith Roberts, RN : Currently the Coordinator of the Community Parish Nurse Program at Carle Foundation Hospital, Faith has been a nurse for 34 years. Her unique ability to blend theory and reality make her presentations truly powerful and enjoyable. Faith's gift of storytelling captivates her audience to both the drama and humor found in professional practice.
Diane Sieg, RN : As an emergency room nurse for over 20 years, Diane has seen it all. So many of the patients she has treated had one common denominator - they were trying to do too much, too fast, too often. All were living life like an emergency. From the chaos of the emergency room to the calm of her yoga mat, Diane gives you life-saving strategies and shows you how to take care of yourself and take charge of your life!
Bobbie Staten, RN : Bobbie's background as a nurse allowed her to see first hand the pain, stress and frustration that so many people experience at home and work. Her message reflects a universal theme as old as time, yet fresh and relevant for today's hectic life style. When you have your health, family and priorities balanced, life just seems to fall into place. For the few times when it doesn't - laugh!
LeAnn Thieman, LPN : Most nurses didn't choose their careers because of the great hours, pay, and working conditions! LeAnn Thieman reminds them why they entered the profession - and why they stay. By sharing her stories from Chicken Soup for the Nurse's Soul, and those from her own 30 years of nursing, LeAnn encourages, uplifts and honors nurses and champions their daily contributions and sacrifices.
