International Nurses Day, In the News, and Enjoy

International Nurses Day - Today is International Nurses Day!

The International Council of Nurses (ICN) has celebrated this day since 1965. In 1953 Dorothy Sutherland, an official with the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, proposed that President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaim a "Nurses' Day;" he did not approve it.

In January 1974, 12 May was chosen to celebrate the day as it is the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, who is widely considered the founder of modern nursing.

Each year, ICN prepares and distributes the International Nurses Day Kit. The kit contains educational and public information materials, for use by nurses everywhere.
