International Year of the Nurse and Midwife 2020

This is our time: 2020 is the Year of the Nurse and Midwife

2020 is Florence Nightingale’s bicentennial year, designated by World Health Organisation as the first ever global Year of the Nurse and Midwife.

Nurses and midwives make up the largest numbers of the NHS workforce.  They are highly skilled, multi-faceted professionals from a host of backgrounds that represent our diverse communities.  2020 is a time to reflect on these skills, the commitment and expert clinical care they bring, and the impact they make on the lives of so many.  This year is also an opportunity to say thank you to the professions; to showcase their diverse talents and expertise; and to promote nursing and midwifery as careers with a great deal to offer.
