Celebrating Nurses and Healthcare Workers Around the World

International Nurses Day 2020

Tuesday 12th May is International Nurse’s Day – an annual celebration of the crucial work and role of nurses around the world, which also marks the anniversary of the birth of nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale.

This year’s celebrations are incredibly important because 2020 has been designated the year of the nurse and midwife to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.

The public is being asked to “shine a light” from their window at 8.30pm today to recognise the role of the nurses in the coronavirus fight and demonstrate our gratitude, so please join in if you are able too!
