​International Nurses Day 2020

International Nurses Day

We have never been so aware of the relevance of International Nurses Day as we are this year. May 12th - the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the worlds’ most famous nurse, who set the standards of nursing care worldwide.

With many families tragically having lost loved ones within their family and the rest of the world’s population well aware of its disruption to their professional and domestic lives we have never depended so much on the dedication and skills of the nurses who are fighting the Covid-19 virus,

With many nurses being Inner Wheel members, or members of their families, we have a special reason to be thankful for their dedication throughout the year.

Can I also thank all the members of Inner Wheel who have become “nurses” – not “medical nurses” but “Inner Wheel Nurses” – who are helping with so many tasks and to alleviate so much anxiety and worry of those who are separated from their families or from their employment.
