International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. The International Council of Nurses commemorates this important day each year and we think we should too!
So first of all, a message from Scotland’s Chief Nursing Officer Fiona McQueen on the launch of the NMC’ s enabling Professionalism document that you can download from here.
This second video is a little bit of inspiration. This talk is by Carolyn Jones who spent five years interviewing, photographing and filming nurses across America, traveling to places dealing with some of the nation’s biggest public health issues. She shares personal stories of the unwavering dedication in this celebration of the everyday heroes who work at the front line of health care. #nurseheroes
