International Nurses Day 12 May

May 12th marks the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. Her inspiration continues to inspire nurses throughout the world. We in the Foundation of European Nurses in Diabetes (FEND) join all of you in your celebrations to mark this significant date in the global nursing calendar.
To quote Florence Nightingale: 

"For us who nurse, our nursing is a thing, which, unless we are making progress every year, month and week, take my word for it we are going backwards".

Dear nursing colleagues together we are stronger and our voices and infliuence must continue to be heard and positively responded to.
