Each year, May 6-12 is designated "National Nurses Week," ending with a commemoration of the birth of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. Join NMHM for a special, docent-led tour to honor military nurses from the Civil War to the war in Iraq as we highlight the contributions of military nurses from all of the military service branches.
