Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Clinical Nurse Specialists Week

Each year, the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists (NACNS) recognize a week-long celebration to honor and acknowledge the contributions of the 89,000 Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNSs) in North America.

NACNS established National Clinical Nurse Specialist Recognition Week (CNS week) in 2009 to commemorate and celebrate the birth of Hildegard Peplau, who was born on September 1st, 1909.

Dr. Peplau was a prominent nursing theorist whose landmark book, Interpersonal Relations in Nursing, emphasized the nurse-client relationship as the foundation for nursing practice and today serves as the basis of the CNS role in health care.

CNS Week is a perfect time for CNSs to celebrate and bring attention to the role, and for hospitals and health care systems to pay tribute to the valuable part CNSs play in health care and healthcare delivery.
