International Nurses Day (IND) is celebrated each year on 12 May.
It’s a time to acknowledge and thank our nurses and the nursing community and to remind them that their tireless work and commitment does not go unnoticed (especially after the challenging past couple of years).
It also offers us a chance to share our appreciation of the remarkable role our nurses play in improving the health and wellbeing of our clients - some with complex health and disability needs.
International Nurses Day was first declared on 12 May 1974 by the International Council of Nurses, to commemorate the birth of Florence Nightingale, the foundational philosopher of modern nursing, in 1820. This year’s theme for International Nurses Day is Nurses: A Voice to Lead – Invest in nursing and respect rights to secure global health.
The theme conveys the importance of nurses in addressing a broad range of health challenges around the world. International Nurses Day aims to raise the profile of the profession and attract the next generation of nurses.
On behalf of the entire Yooralla community – thank you for the important work that you do. Happy International Nurses Day!
