Happy International Nurses Day: Celebrating Caregivers Around the Globe

If ever there was a time to send thoughtful gifts to nurses, this would be the year. Thankfully International Nurses Day gives us all a reminder to give back to those who tend to our loved ones.

For the third year in a row, caregivers around the globe have handled everything from caring for sick patients to handling life-or-death circumstances for themselves and their families. All of this while working through an ongoing crisis that has affected every hospital in the world. Nurses aren’t always given the respect that they deserve. So we have taken this year as a special opportunity to celebrate International Nurses Day and give our frontline workers the appreciation that they deserve.

Each year, the International Council of Nurses (ICN) leads the celebration of International Nurses Day, held on 12 May. The theme for 2022 is A Voice to Lead – which demonstrates the need for social programs to invest in nursing, build a resilient nursing workforce and protect nurses’ rights to strengthen health systems around the world.
