Health Minister Kim Wilson joined members of the Bermuda Nurses Association this week to mark and read this year’s proclamation on International Nurses Day.

This year’s International Nurses Day theme is “Our Nurses, Our Future”. According to the International Council of Nurses (ICN), Our Nurses, Our Future is a global campaign which aims to address global health challenges and achieve better global health for all.  

International Nurses Day marks the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, who is considered the founder of modern nursing. The day is celebrated every year on May 12 to highlight the contribution of nurses to the healthcare sector.
