Today, Wednesday 12 May, marks International Nurses Day.

The theme for the 2021 campaign is Nurses: A Voice to Lead – A vision for future healthcare. According to campaign organiser the International Council of Nurses this aims to show how nursing will look into the future as well how the profession will transform the next stage of healthcare.
