During National Nurses Week and throughout the year, the American Nurses Association (ANA) is proud to celebrate the role nurses play in delivering the highest level of quality care to their patients. The 2015 National Nurses Week theme "Ethical Practice. Quality Care." recognizes the importance of ethics in nursing and acknowledges the strong commitment, compassion and care nurses display in their practice and profession. The theme is an important part of ANA's 2015 Year of Ethics outreach to promote and advocate for the rights, health and safety of nurses and patients.
