International Nurses Day 2011

Following International Nurses Day, the NHS Employers organisation has compiled some useful tools and information to help you celebrate and promote the role of the nurse.

International Nurses Day is celebrated on 12 May, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth, and provides an opportunity to promote the role of the nurse and the work they do in caring for the public.

Each year the International Council of Nurses selects a theme for the day, which this year is “Closing the gap: increasing access and equality”. The International Council of Nurses produces a kit to support organisations that includes educational and public information materials, available from their website.
