Celebrating the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife
We highlight the best of UK nursing every day, but this year the profession is receiving global recognition.
The World Health Organization has designated 2020 the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.
Our coverage in this special year focuses on the image of nursing, nurses’ roles and their contribution around the world.
This year also marks the bicentenary of the birth of Florence Nightingale whose impact on nursing is being celebrated in many different countries.
