International Nurses’ Day – Thursday 12 May 2016

International Nurses' Day

Published: 12 May 2016

International Nurses’ Day is celebrated around the world every year on May 12 – the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. Nurses’ Day is a chance to celebrate the remarkable difference nursing staff make each and every day and also to say ‘thank you’.

From the moment a new life begins, to saying goodbye to a loved one, and all the stages in between, nursing staff help to make a difference.

Fill out the brief form below to share your thanks… all of the ‘thank you’ messages will feature on our special nurses’ day ‘thank you board’ below!
