There could not be a more fitting tribute to all the #Nurses in the world today on International #Nurse & Midwife Day. A big “Thank You” is what they have asked for and I am sure from the bottom of all our hearts we cannot “Thank You” enough especially during this COVID-19 Pandemic.
“Today, we’re saying thank you to nursing staff everywhere for the remarkable contribution they make to the lives of millions of people.
International Nurses’ Day is celebrated around the world each year on 12 May, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. This year in particular it’s an extra special occasion because not only does it fall during International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, it also marks the 200th anniversary of Nightingale’s birth.
Ordinarily this would be a time for mass celebration, but as nursing staff across the world stand united in responding to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we must use today to shine a light on the remarkable work all health and care staff are doing for the entire nation.
That’s why we’re asking the public and patients to say thank you to #nursing staff everywhere to show our members and their colleagues how their professionalism is truly appreciated.”
