Medical-Surgical Nurses Week: November 1-7


Medical-surgical nurses focus every day on caring compassionately for patients and families. The Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) has designated a special week, November 1-7, to shift that focus to the nurses themselves.

The Medical-Surgical Nursing Certification Board (MSNCB) partners with AMSN to celebrate the specialty of medical-surgical nursing during this week.
