The survey closes on May 1, 2023.


May is National Nurses Month. This month, and always, we are proud of your work and proud to support you as you care for patients and demonstrate to the world the power of nurses. To thank you we have made our journals free to read, and will be offering discounts on Nursing content all month long.​


AAENP has some new communication materials to help with education of patients and students:​

  • ​Who have increased risk for severe illness from COVID
  • The availability of COVID treatments
  • The importance of getting treated early​

​Developed in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service’s COVID-19 Public Education Campaign, We Can Do This, the materials include handouts, posters, talking points, and social media, in both English and Spanish. The information comes from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and has been culturally tailored by the We Can Do This campaign’s team of multicultural experts.
