Tuesday, May 12 marks International Nurses Day


Tuesday is International Nurses Day. The day honors the tremendous sacrifices these healthcare workers make day in and day out — especially during the times we are in now.

International Nurses Day also marks the end of National Nurses Week in the United States.

May 12 became International Nurses Day to honor Florence Nightingale’s birthday. The English nurse spent her night rounds giving personal care to the wounded during the Crimean War.
