International Nurses Day (IND) is celebrated around the world every May 12 on the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth, with this year’s celebration coinciding with Nightingale’s 200th birth anniversary. The theme for IND 2020 was decided last year as “Nursing the World to Health” – more appropriate than ever considering the crises mankind has undergone this year. WHO had also designated 2020 as The Year of the Nurse and Midwife, demonstrating how nurses are central to addressing a wide range of health challenges.
Asiatic Public Relations Network joins its hands this International Nurses Day, in applauding the tireless efforts of all healthcare professionals but especially nurses, who are the backbone of our healthcare system. All around the world, nurses are working tirelessly to provide the care and attention people need, whenever and wherever they need it. We salute you!
