Please Note: Most of the dates listed are National & Official dates celebrated for that specific specialty and those dates do not change from year to year  -- for example: National Nurses Week always falls during May 6 - 12 and this date never changes. 

However, there are other specialties that are celebrated on a specific week of the month verses specific dates.  These types of specialties do change from year to year.  An example of this is National Care Management Week celebrated "the 2nd week of October." 

We have indicated such under the specialty listed and to see the actual date celebrated for a given year, please click on the name of that specialty or blue link for that specialty. For example the blue link "National Care Management Week" will take you into the national organization for Care Managers and will list the actual dates celebrated for that year.
