International Nurses Day is celebrated each year to give credit to the contributions that the nurses make to society. Since 1965, the International Council of Nurses has celebrated May 12 as International Nurses Day. May 12 is the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, who was the founder of modern nursing. Hence, the day was chosen to celebrate the contribution of the nurses.
Nurses play a huge role in society, especially during times like the coronavirus pandemic. Here is a compilation of some images and memes on International Nurses Day that will brighten your day. You can send these memes to your friends and family and let them know the importance of a nurse with some light-hearted humour.
