As the single largest workforce group, nurses are there at every turn, making a real difference to the care and the experience of patients and their families and carers.
International Nurses Day is celebrated each year on 12 May, on the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
On International Nurses Day, we want to acknowledge the compassion, professionalism, and round-the-clock commitment of nurses caring for patients in the public health system. We celebrate and appreciate nurses, and the important role of nursing across the world.
