Thank a Nurse

Nurses make valuable contributions to society every day, so take time to thank a nurse that has touched your life, or someone close to you. It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture, a few words, a card or poem is always appreciated.

Acknowledge the hard work, long hours, and emotional stress that are part of the life of every nurse on International Nurses Day.
