Celebrate Nurses Across The World!

International Nurses Day has been celebrated on May 12th, Florence Nightingale’s birthday, for over 50 years. Florence Nightingale is considered the founder of modern nursing. It has been created to celebrate the commitments of nurses around the world and the incredible work they do!

Nurses have a very varied role and they are responsible for a number of different things in the workplace. This can include writing care plans for patients, assisting with evaluations and tests, checking and administering drugs and injections, observing and recording the condition of patients, maintaining patient records, mentoring student nurses, organising staff, and reassuring patients and their relatives....and this list barely scratches the surface! Nurses certainly have a huge role to play when it comes to the health and wellbeing of people all around the world.

The aim of International Nurses Day is to raise awareness in order to make positive amendments for both nurses and patients. This event has especially been significant in recent years as it highlights the struggles and pressures nurses go through especially after the pandemic. It has also caused an extraordinary demand to train and recruit more nurses.
