International Nurses Day is a worldwide celebration that takes place on the same day as Florence Nightingale's birthday. Florence Nightingale is known for introducing modern nursing practices. The purpose of this day is to acknowledge the valuable contributions that nurses make to society. This year’s theme, ‘Our Nurses.
