Volume 33 · Issue 9

To all nurses worldwide, irrespective of geographical location, the field you specialise in or the patients you serve and support, 12 May 2024 is a momentous occasion. International Nurses Day celebrates your unwavering dedication, tireless efforts and invaluable contributions to health care. It is a day to acknowledge the remarkable impact that you make, individually and collectively, on the lives of patients, families and communities. Take pride in your profession and may this day serve as a reminder of your commitment to providing exceptional care.

The legacies of Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale, who demonstrated unparalleled dedication during the Crimean War in 1853, continue to inspire nurses worldwide. These early pioneers in nursing history went above and beyond to ensure that those wounded, those distanced from their families and their homelands, received not only medical attention but also comfort and emotional support and nursing care. Their legacy lives on, with nursing professionals worldwide embodying the same spirit of compassion and resilience.
