International Nurse Day

Organised annually by the International Council of Nurses, International Nurses Day celebrates the contribution that nurses make to societies around the world. The date has a very strong significance, being the birthday of perhaps the world’s most famous nurse, Florence Nightingale.

Alongside the encouragement of a fully deserved congratulations owed to nurses, the organisation also produces an International Nurses Day Kit to educate and assist health workers around the world, with a different theme each year. Past publications have focused on working with the poor, fighting AIDS, equal access to care, and sustainable development.

I know we have all been amazed by our Nurses all over the world during the Covid-19 pandemic, their dedication to saving lives, working on the front line as they did, giving no thought to their safety and health and wellbeing.  If their has ever been a moment in time more apt, to giving them thanks…this is it…and we are all utterly and  truly thankful.
