International Nurses Day 2018
International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. The International Council of Nurses commemorates this important day each year with the production and distribution of the International Nurses’ Day (IND) Kit.
Though mainly planned around May 12 each year, IND activities continue for much of the year by nurses and others. We encourage nurses everywhere to make extended use of the Nurses: A Force for Change: Improving health systems’ resilience kit throughout the year, through individual action and group activities.
