International Nurses Day Celebrations 


Let’s celebrate this day as a day to respect, protect and thank our nurses. In addition, this blog post will highlight the importance of International Nurses Day and what our Nurses have said about working for Athena Healthcare Group. 

What this day is about

International Nurses Day is celebrated on 12th May every year to commemorate the contribution of nurses towards society. Therefore, this day is dedicated to honouring the efforts of nurses worldwide who work tirelessly to provide quality healthcare to patients. The COVID-19 pandemic has further highlighted the importance of nurses in healthcare. Moreover, nurses around the world have been working tirelessly to treat COVID-19 patients, they have put their own lives at risk and for that, they deserve to be celebrated!

On International Nurses Day, let us recognise the dedication and sacrifice of nurses worldwide. Furthermore, let us celebrate their contribution to society and pledge to support them in their efforts to provide quality healthcare to all.
