Nurses Day 2020

In home by Local Care Force

Today each year, on International Nurses’ Day, we always give thanks to nursing staff. However this year we need to show our appreciation more than ever…

International Nurses’ Day is celebrated around the world, on 12 May, as it’s the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. The day provides an opportunity to mark the contribution of nursing staff and celebrate the vital work they do each and every day.

This year is the 200th anniversary of Nightingale’s birth, so it was always going to be a big celebration. However, as nursing staff across the world stand united, in responding to the global COVID-19 pandemic, it’s even more important to say thank you to all the nursing staff, all over the world.
