National Nurses Day, 2020

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Every day, nurses provide quality, compassionate, and 
                critical care to patients during both routine medical 
                visits and in times of great vulnerability, fear, and 
                uncertainty. Over the past weeks and months, as our 
                nurses have worked heroically on the frontlines of the 
                coronavirus response, their contributions to the health 
                and well-being of our citizenry have been exponentially 
                magnified. On National Nurses Day, we honor and 
                celebrate the extraordinary men and women who devote 
                themselves to this vital and noble profession.

                Nursing is not merely a vocation; it is a special 
                calling to serve others selflessly, particularly in 
                times when help is needed most. Throughout our Nation's 
                history, in times of war, natural disaster, medical 
                emergencies, and both epidemics and pandemics, nurses 
                have rushed in--undaunted by danger, personal 
                sacrifice, and discomfort to provide hope, help, and
