International Nurses Day is celebrated worldwide on 12th May. The day is designated to honor the hard work of all nurses. Florence Nightingale was born on this day. She was the founder of modern nursing. It is known that the first International Nurses Day was celebrated in 1965. This day is the birthday of the social reformer, statistician, and founder of modern nursing. Her birthday is designated as Nursing Day.

History of International Nurses Day

This day was declared by the International Council for Nurses (ICN) in 1974.  Florence Nightingale rose to prominence during the Crimean War. It was during this war that revolutionary developments and changes took place in the history of nursing. Seeing the inadequate medical care and poor condition of the soldiers, Florence Nightingale came forward to serve the soldiers along with 38 nurses.

 During the war, she was posted to the Barrack Hospital in Scutari, Istanbul.  She was tasked with leading a group of nurses to care for wounded soldiers. But, upon arriving at the hospital, Nightingale was shocked to see the extremely unsanitary and miserable conditions there.  Therefore, she soon made sure the hospital was clean and had proper hygiene, and he also provided adequate food and medical supplies. Thus she built proper hospitals for healthcare. It remains a unique example of nursing care even today.

Florence Nightingale was born on May 12, 1820, in Florence, Italy. During the Crimean War, which lasted from October 1853 to February 1856, she played a prominent role, standing by the side of sick soldiers.

The war was fought between an alliance of Britain, Turkey, France, and Sardinia against Russia. Several soldiers were injured during this battle. Florence Nightingale not only took care of them but also brought about a huge change in healthcare.

International Nurses Day is celebrated every year on this day on the occasion of her birth anniversary.

Why do we should celebrate International Nurses Day?

Nurses have been playing a responsible role alongside doctors in medical care. Doctors end their duties with prescriptions. But nurses are in overall supervision of the patient from giving medicine to the subsequent treatment. Nurses can reduce the patient’s emotional distress or fear through positive action. But when nurses are subjected to rank harassment, including promotion, patients are deprived of desired services.

This day highlights the importance of nurses in the healthcare field.  ICN celebrates International Nurses Day by distributing educational and promotional materials.

 These materials are distributed in recognition of the hard work and dedication of nurses around the world. The main aim of celebrating this day is to spread some awareness about the nursing profession. It also sheds light on the issues of low pay, poor working conditions, and helping nurses in many other ways.
