Medical-Surgical Nurses Week

The Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) has designated a special week, November 1-7, to honor the ways that medical-surgical nurses make a difference.  As stated by the AMSN, these nurses:
  • Build the profession of nursing and the medical-surgical nursing specialty
  • Mentor and nurture each other
  • Advocate for patients and families at the local and national levels
  • Serve their communities through care and education
  • Promote medical-surgical nursing certification, resulting in better and safer health care
  • Improve patient care through evidence-based practice
  • Speak, write, and conduct research to inspire and educate others
