International Nurses’ Day 2022
12 May 2022
The world celebrates International Nurses’ Day every May 12th – the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale.
On International Nurses' Day, the people of the world celebrate nurses and thank them for their skill and compassion in supporting health and wellbeing everywhere. Over the past two years nurses have faced challenges beyond any in living memory.
This year it is also important that nurses reflect and take time to care for themselves and to safeguard their own physical, mental and emotional health.
The QNI is there for all nurses in the community and social care - we offer a listening service for any nurse who wants to talk about work or life challenges, and financial assistance for any nurse who finds themselves in need.Dr Crystal Oldman CBE, Chief Executive, The QNI
