International Nurses Week, 2018

International Nurses Week is celebrated between May 6th and May 12th each year to promote nursing as a profession and a discipline. It ends on May 12th to celebrate Florence Nightingale’s birthday and her life contributions to the nursing field.

Ministry of Health joins the global community to celebrate this important week by paying our tribute to our Nurses who work day and night to heal and give hope to our patients. We offer our sincere gratitude to all our talented and hardworking nurses for their ongoing efforts and dedication to keeping our people healthy.

Nurses are the primary point of contact for many patients and their families in times of anxiety. They care and comfort patient in times of sickness and distress. They touch the life of every person and create a health system that puts patients at the centre of care.
