Celebrating International Nurses Day 2021


Each year May 12 is celebrated globally as International Nurses Day, to coincide with the birth of Florence Nightingale. Nightingale was best known as the founder of modern nursing and for her efforts to reform healthcare by improving hygiene practices and using evidence to improve practice.

This year’s theme was Nurses: A Voice to Lead - A vision for future healthcare and was focused on the changes in nursing and the innovations which will shape the future of healthcare. 

Anne-Marie Ryan, Director of Professional Standards and Education, Nursing at NMBI said ‘International Nurses Day give us the opportunity to acknowledge the vital role played by nurses both in Ireland and abroad and to celebrate their achievements’.

‘Since the global pandemic began, nurses have proven their great commitment to patient care in what is a very challenging environment, and I would like to pay tribute to the work they have done and continue to do. Nurses have been on the frontline during Covid-19 and there has never been a more important time to acknowledge their dedication to the provision of healthcare in Ireland.’

To mark International Nurses Day 2021, NMBI in collaboration with the Office of the Nursing and Midwifery Services Director (ONMSD), HSE, have created video messages of support to nurses across Ireland.
