International Nurses Day 2020

The International Council of Nurses has set the theme for International Nurses Day 2020 as

“nursing the world to health”

with a focus on the:

“true value of nurses to the people of the world”.


Each year, the ICN leads the global celebrations on International Nurses Day, which is traditionally held on 12 May, the anniversary of the birth of nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale.

  • CN president Annette Kennedy added:


“All around the world, nurses are working tirelessly to provide the care and attention people need, whenever and wherever they need it.

  • In the midst of this global coronavirus pandemic, nurses are risking their lives to protect others.


 “Clap for Carers”, has now become a tradition to show our support for all health care workers, every Thursday at 8pm,
