History of International Nurses Day

The history of International Nurses Day dates back to 1965 when the International Council of Nurses (ICN) celebrated it for the first time. Dorothy Sutherland, an official with the US health department proposed the idea of this day to be celebrated in 1953. However, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, did not approve of celebrating "Nurses Day." Finally, in January 1974, the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale 12 May was chosen to celebrate International Nurses Day. The ICN gives away International Nurses' Day Kits for all the nurses around containing educational and public information materials. we are celebrating of 3rd anniversary of our web site.
