International Nurses and Midwives Day

Keep these important dates in your diary:
Midwives’ Day 5 May 2017
Nurses’ Day 12 May 2017

International Nurses’ and Midwives’ Day is celebrated all around the world every year on 5 and 12 May in recognition of the outstanding contribution that nurses and midwives make to their local communities. We would like to thank all nurses, midwives and personal care assistants for the important work they do.

‘Why I love my job’

We’re encouraging nurses, midwives and personal care assistants to fill out your own versions of the cards from the downloadable pdfs below and to tell us why you love your job. We want to share your comments on our website and social media pages to highlight the great job you do every day.

You can download the ‘why I love my job’ card to print and give out to other work colleagues, inviting them to join in.
