International Nurses Day

The 12 May marks International Nurses Day (IND) and the birthday of Florence Nightingale. This significant day will be celebrated by nurses throughout the world marking the contributions nurses make to society.

In UK, each year a service is held in Westminster Abbey in London.

This signifies the passing of knowledge from one nurse to another.
