On this day, we celebrate the drive and compassion exhibited by student nurses around the country. These students dedicate countless hours to their studies in order to help the citizens of their country.
Student Nurses are at the cutting edge of technology, learning the latest life-saving techniques. At the same time, they are practicing skills in programs that have been built upon medical science. Each year, the demand for nurses grows. Now more than ever, the nursing field needs more people dedicated to the field of medicine. Their drive to care, learn, and specialize in nursing will make a difference in the lives of millions of individuals and the families who love them each year.
Hence, this holiday was started. The American Nurses Association established National Student Nurse Day to recognizes student nurses in 1998 and the holiday has continued until the present day!
