Nurses Week 2017

Nurses Week 2017 is our time to celebrate and recognize the immeasurable contributions that our nurses make every day to the health and care of others. In appreciation of excellence in nursing practice, the UCLA Health Department of Nursing has planned 3-days of wellness-focused speakers, classes, and events. Nurses across the health system will enjoy massages, Urban Zen treatments, Yoga, Zumba, Mindful Meditation, Tai Chi, Tea for the Soul, Blessings of the hands, and more.

Our UCLA Health 2017 Nurses Week theme "Caring Begins with U" aligns with UCLA Health's desire to support nurses in their pursuit of wellness, self-care and work-life balance.

To view and post photos of this year's Nurses Week events on social media use #caringbeginswithU, and #UCLAnursesweek2017.
