International Nurses Day

Unfortunately, most people seem to think that only doctors are the most important people in the healthcare system, but this is simply not true. Even the underdog nurses also play an important role in all of our medical institutions, being responsible for the welfare, safety, and recovery of patients.

International Nurses Day is celebrated on May 12 in the World to provide respect and Honor to the Nurses for their honorable and Incredible work. There are many Nurses who work during the day as well as at night. Nurses make the Patients get cured quickly with every type of Facilities and Services given to the Patients. The Nurses are used to giving the Patients to survive from many of the Diseases. Nurses help patients survive better in the World.

This Day is used to celebrate for all the Nurses who are available every time in the World for the Patients who are suffering from many diseases. Nurses are used to providing much of the Services and Facilities for the Patients to get the proper care for any of the diseases they are suffering from. Nurses are used to gathering every information no matter it is small or big about the Patients. They are used to treat the patient as per their Physical Situations.


It all began in 1953, when Dorothy Sutherland, an official with the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, contacted President Dwight D. Eisenhower proposing he proclaim a “Nurses’ Day”. However, at that time he did not permit her proposal. Since 1965, The International Council of Nurses has celebrated on May 12th.

Nurses are found all across the World to do every activity for the cure and well being of the Patient. International Nurse Day is celebrated on May 12 by the people for the Birthday of the nightingale of Florence who was the Founder for Nurses.

How to celebrate International Nurses Day

This day is all about celebrating nurses’ endless contributions to society. Take this opportunity to show a nurse who has taken care of you how much you appreciate him or her. As with most gestures of appreciation, whatever you decide to do that doesn’t need to be grand or costly. Sad as it is, many people neglect to thank their nurses at all. They see them only as robots who only know how to follow the doctor’s orders. So every little way to say a simple “thank you” will definitely make that nurse’s day.

Some people, after having spent months in the hospital with a serious condition, decide to give a treat to the entire medical team that was looking after them. It is a gesture that the team is guaranteed to remember you forever if you should decide on it. However, as mentioned before, it’s the thought that counts the most. A nurse’s main goal is to help you get through getting better and treatment. So just knowing he or she succeeded is a reward in itself.
