International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every 12 May.
SK-Telemed want to wish all 20-plus million nurses a happy International Nurses Day as they continue to nurse the world to health.
The very first celebration of International Nurses Day dates to 1965, when the International Council of Nurses (ICN) celebrated this day.
Each year, the International Council of Nurses (ICN) leads the celebrations on International Nurses Day, but in 2020 it has a special significance because this is the first ever International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, and the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of modern nursing’s founders, Florence Nightingale.
This year’s theme, “Nurses: A Voice to Lead – Nursing the World to Health”, could not be more appropriate and demonstrates how nurses are central to addressing a wide range of health challenges, including the current COVID-19 pandemic.
