International Nurses Day 2020

Int Nurses Day Post 2020 Final

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.

The International Council of Nurses has set the theme for International Nurses Day 2020 as “nursing the world to health”, with a focus on the “true value of nurses to the people of the world”.
