    How about something like this?

    With all the new opportunities nurses have in our high tech society, there are multiple choices for careers. The butterfly depicting spreading one's wings, and being ready to fly into the challenge of something new, or different.

    Again no truth in advertising! LOL If truth be told It should be "Nurse Week , celebrate people who choose to work under immense stress, never urinate , and never eat sitting down ! "
    But I really do like the fact that they said "profession"

    Oh, I don't know, I kinda care about having a heart. Makes CPR so much easier.

    Then how about nurses with sweaty, red faces, Eating a hotdog on the run, and a foley catheter hanging on her side?

    Ummm... I'd be happy to make a big thing of National Nurses Week if we had, say, "National Accountants Week" or "National Contractors Week."

    Having a special Nurses Week is an attempt to give mass hugs to nurses, and as long as it's done, we can safely expect plenty of hugs, bears, and angels to be portrayed.

    If nurses are professionals, let's act like we are, and stop wanting meaningless "recognition." Pride in professional practice, and the pay that comes with that is plenty of recognition for me.

    The logo is interesting.

    Look closing as it does refelct the theme well.

    It has all these gradiant color which plays on the "many roles". It has one heart which plays on the "one profession". Then if you closely at the upper part of the heart, it sort of have this mathematical infinity symbol (don't know if this was designed in or just a coincident) which again refer to the "many role" and it is within one heart which again reflect "one profession".

    Also the coloring is gender neutral.

    Hmmm... one improvement could be that the heart should anatomically correct. I mean we all know the heart does not shape like that.
