Nurses from all over the world...

Nurses from all over the world
Every May 12th since 1965, on Florence Nightingale’s birthday, the International Council of Nurses (ICN) celebrates International Nurses Day (IND) to remind everyone how nurses work to guarantee high-quality nursing care for all and, through their input, strengthen valuable health policies. ICN is a federation of over 130 national nurses associations representing over 13 million nurses all over the world. The theme ICN chose for the 2014 IND is Nurses: A Force for Change — A Vital Resource for Health.

In 2013, infirmiers.com, France’s main online source for the nursing community, chose to also celebrate IND in its own way, through a project called “Letter to a friend who wants to become a nurse.” This project attracted great interest and many contributions, which led to the creation of a report under that name.

As we celebrate IND for 2014, infirmier.com is again seeking contributions to this project in order to share it worldwide! If you’d like to contribute a letter, please contact Bernadette Fabregas, infirmiers.com’s editor-in-chief, at bernadette.fabregas@infirmiers.com.

Leadership In Primary Healthcare

CNA is pleased to release this compilation of 10 stories: our leadership in primary health care (PHC) series. These stories illustrate how registered nurses (RNs) are boldly championing social justice and health equity principles in a way that responds to the needs and expectations of Canadians.
