Global Nurses Day is a worldwide day celebrated far and wide on 6th May the commemoration of Florence Nightingale's introduction to the world of every year, to stamp the commitments medical attendants make to society. The International Council of Nurses ICN has praised this day since 1965. In 1953 Dorothy Sutherland, an authority with the U.S. Division of Health, Education, and Welfare, suggested that President Dwight D. Eisenhower announce a "Medical attendants' Day"; he didn't favor it.
In January 1974, 12 May was praised the day as it is the commemoration of the introduction of Florence Nightingale, the organizer of present-day nursing. Each year, ICN gets ready and disperses the International Nurses' Day Kit. The unit contains instructive and open data materials, for use by medical attendants everywhere. The U.S. observes National Nursing Week every year from 6 May to 12 May the birthday of Florence Nightingale.
Canada observes National Nursing Week every year amid the week that incorporates 12 May, which is Florence Nightingale's birthday. The Canadian Minister of Health initiated National Nursing Week in Canada in 1985. In the U.S., National Nurses Week was first seen from 11– 16 October 1954 out of appreciation for the 100th commemoration of Florence Nightingale's main goal to Crimea.
