The 12th May is International Nurses Day, which is celebrated on the birthday of Florence Nightingale.
2020 was an especially special year for nursing as was the Year of the Nurse and Midwife and commemorated the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the work of nurses across the world is being recognised and valued more than ever.
The International Council of Nurses choose the theme of each International Nurses Day, which for 2020 is aimed at "Nursing the world to health.".
