International Nurses Day

Today is International Nurse’s Day and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank nurses all over the world for what they have and for what they continue to do for us during a very difficult time.

History of Nurses Day

Florence Nightingale’s most famous contribution came during the Crimean War, which became her central focus when reports got back to Britain about the horrific conditions for the wounded. On 21 October 1854, she and the staff of 38 women volunteer nurses that she trained and 15 catholic nuns found that the soldiers were wounded badly were not given proper care. They found that during that war the medicines were in short supply, hygiene was being neglected, and mass infections were common the soldiers and many of them fatal.

Nightingale sent a plea to The Times to get a government solution to the poor situation of the facilities at the war-zone.  As soon as the plea was sent, the British Government commissioned Isambard Kingdom Brunel to design a prefabricated hospital that could be built in England and shipped to the Dardanelles. A prefabricated building is nothing but  a building that is made of parts  that could be transported and quickly and easily be assembled and built anywhere.

The aim of celebrating Nurses Day

  • 1.Nurses worldwide should be educated, given direction, and given up-to-date information about the health sector’s needs and expectations so that they do not fall behind.
  • 2.Nurses should be provided with reasonable working hours, maternity leave, mental health care, and other assistance because they are so crucial to the health sector.
  • 3.They should be provided with adequate financial aid and timely supplies of the services they need.

Nurses play a huge role in the well-being of people all around the world. Take a moment of thought remember their efforts. This has, and continues to be, immeasurably important during the Covid-19 pandemic.
