International Nurses Day
International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. The International Council of Nurses (ICN) commemorates this important day each year with the production and distribution of the International Nurses’ Day (IND) resources and evidence.
ICN chooses a theme each year to celebrate International Nurses Day. Their 2017-2019 campaign, Nurses: A Voice to Lead, focuses on the need for nurses to become more active and vocal in policy development and implementation.
Nurses are essential in transforming health care and health systems such that no person is left behind, without access to care or impoverished because of their need for health care.
