International Nurses’ Day

International Nurses’ Day is observed on May 12th across the world to honour the services of nurses. It is the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, who was an English social reformer, statistician and founder of modern nursing. She was also known as Lady with the Lamp.

The theme for this year is “Nurses: A Voice to Lead – Invest in Nursing and respect rights to secure global health”.

Various hospitals across the world observe International Nurses Week from May 6 to 12. As part of it, several activities, including yoga sessions and seminars, were being organised.

About Florence Nightingale:

Nightingale gained prominence during the Crimean War between Russia and Britain in the 1850s. Along with her team of 38 women, she took care of British soldiers who were dealing with horrible sanitation facilities apart from battling Russian forces.
