International Nurses Day 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted even more how important nurses are to our communities.

Today is International Nurses Day and Council wants to say thank you to all the nurses and midwives, especially our team of Maternal and Child Health and Immunisation teams who keep our community safe and healthy.

This day is celebrated on 12 May for the birth date of Florence Nightingale, who revolutionised the care and safety of patients in the 19th century through the implementation of hand washing and hygiene measures and evidence-based training for nurses.

The year 2020 is also the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife and today and every day we say thank you to our invaluable health professionals.
