International Nurses Day 2016
International Nurses Day 2016 would be celebrated by the nurses all across the world on 12th of May, at Thursday.
International Nurses Day History
Nurses Day was first proposed by the Dorothy Sutherland (an officer from the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare) in the year 1953 and first proclaimed by the President Dwight D. Eisenhower. And it was first celebrated by the International Council of Nurses (ICN) in the year 1965.
In the month of January in 1974, the 12th of May was declared to be celebrated as the birthday anniversary of the founder of modern nursing, the Florence Nightingale. International Nurses Day Kit (having educational and public information materials to be used by the nurses among public) is prepared and distributed every year by the International Council of Nurses while celebrating the nurses day.
UNISON (the British public sector union) had asked the ICN in 1999 to celebrate this day on another date as Florence Nightingale is not symbolizing the modern nursing. Then, National Student Nurses’ Day was started celebrating annually on 8th of May since 1998 and National Nurses Week was started celebrating every year from 6th of May to 12th of May since 2003.
International Council of Nurses commemorates the International Nurses Day annually all around the world on 12th of May as the birth anniversary of the Florence Nightingale. International Council of Nurses would distribute an IND Kit in 2014 having educational and public information materials with the theme “Nurses: A Force for Change – A vital resource for health”. Nurses are encouraged at this day to comprehensively use this kit throughout the year through their individual and group activities.
Florence Nightingale (the foundational philosopher of the modern nursing) was born on 12th of May in 1820. International Council of Nurses established the day in 1974 to be celebrated every year to highlight the importance of nurses role in providing the best health care services. She became an important figure of the nursing since Crimean War during 1850s. She, stationed at the Barrack Hospital, Scutari, reformed the health care services and nursing and opened “the Nightingale School of Nursing” at the St. Thomas Hospital, London in 1860.
Promotional and educational activities are organized while celebrating the International Nurses Day annually to address lots of nursing issues. The theme of celebration is selected based on nurses and environment, handling poor, poverty issues and many more. It is celebrated as a week long event, referred as National Nurses Week, in many countries like Australia, United States, Canada and etc.

A great poet said that ‘The best place to cry is in a mother’s arms.’ According to me, the mother is the creature of life, the giver of life with abundant love, care, and protection. The bond between mother and child is the only real and purest bond in the world. I don’t believe in the love at first sight because my mother started loving me before seeing me. A mother loves her children unconditionally. However they hatred on her, she will carry love on them. There is no greater heaven than the heart of a loving mother, She takes care of you when you are still in her womb, She nurtures you after you are born, She hurts when you fall.
￼ Mothers Day is celebrated every year on the first Sunday of may across the world. No other occasion can be perfect than this day when it comes to expressing your love and affection towards your mother. Just honor your mom and give respect to her. She will be the only one who will be loving you till her last breath. From the birth of us till her last moment of life, she cares for us like a small child. We cannot count her contribution in our lives
