The World Health Organization (WHO) has designed 2020 to nurses and midwives to coincide with the 200th anniversary of nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale’s birth.
Having this in mind, the International Council of Nurses (ICN) made a call in order to mark the start of the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife and the beginning of a new decade and to draw governments’ attention to the nursing shortfall.
And Vitae Professionals agrees!
As ICN chief executive Howard Catton said: “Let’s make 2020 a catalyst for a brighter future for healthcare around the globe, so that we will be able to look back and say, ‘we turned this situation around’ and nobody will have to live their life without the healthcare that they need.”
If you know someone that is a nurse and has anyhow touched your life, remember to give them a special recognition throughout the year of 2020!
