Every year International Nurses Day celebrated on May 12 around the world. The reason behind the 12th May date is the anniversary of Florence Nightingle’s birth. International Nurses day celebrated to mark the contributions of the Nurses to society. This day is celebrated by International council of Nurses (ICN) since 1965. Back in 1953 Dorothy Sutherland who was the official of US department of health, education and welfare proposed this Nurses Day celebration to president Dwight D. Eisenhower but he didn’t approved it.
Later, In January 1974 – 12th May decided to celebrate as International Nurses Day because on this day the modern nursing founder Florence Nightingle was born.
