“I would like to offer my full support for Nurses’ Day as it gives us all an opportunity to voice our thanks for the care and dedication given by our nursing staff. Unfortunately nurses, whether working in hospitals or in the community are often the victims of assault or harassment. Nurses’ Day gives us the chance to stand with nurses and through supporting nurses we support the vulnerable and needy in our society who benefit most from the work of our medical professionals.”
International Nurse Day sms messages
The Royal College of Nursing has received numerous messages of support from politicians across the UK in recognition of International Nurses’ Day.
Nurses’ Day is celebrated on 12 May each year, as a tribute to the amazing work of Florence Nightingale who was born on that day in 1820. Celebrating Nurses’ Day is an opportunity for everyone around the world to remember the valuable contributions that nurses make to society. Events are taking place all across the country and nurses are encouraged to send an eCard to their colleagues to celebrate the day and recognise the hard work undertaken by all nurses.
