Thank you for celebrating #PNW2016! In 2017 Pediatric Nurses Week will be celebrated October 2-6, 2017. 

The mission of this week is to promote pediatric nursing, the practice of nurses dedicated to promoting the optimal health of children and providing excellence in nursing care of children and their families. This week calls attention the critical work that pediatric nurses provide to improve healthcare delivery. It is a time to reflect on the contributions pediatric nurses make to patients, families, and communities.

Check back in 2017 for more details on the 2017 PNW celebration!
