Celebrating Nursing!


Shine a light on 12th May to mark International Nurses Day


Nursing leaders are asking the public to ‘shine a light’ to mark International Nurses Day on Tuesday (12th May) and recognise the extraordinary work that their colleagues are doing in the fight against coronavirus.


The day also marks on the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, who founded modern nursing and pioneered infection control, but is also famous for her lamp. 2020 has been made International Year of the Nurse to mark the bicentenary of Florence’s birth. 


Siobhan Heafield, the Chief Nurse for the Midlands, has joined other senior nursing leaders in urging people to shine a light from their window at 8:30pm on Tuesday to mark the day and show their appreciation for all that nurses are doing to save and rebuild the lives of patients with coronavirus.
