Nurses' Day 2024: Celebrating the value of nursing

On Sunday 12 May, we’ll be highlighting our skilled nursing profession and celebrating all nursing staff.

Nurses' Day 2024 launch
Nurses’ Day is an opportunity to demonstrate the remarkable difference nursing staff make to many lives, every day.  

Mark Nurses’ Day in your workplace by ordering badges for you and your colleagues, putting up posters and using our social media graphics. 

Nursing staff and the public can also get involved by sharing stories on social media about a time when a nursing colleague made a difference to you or someone you love, using #NursesDay in the post.  

RCN General Secretary and Chief Executive Professor Pat Cullen said: “Nursing is a highly skilled, safety-critical profession. We are experts, we are leaders. You dedicate yourselves to ensuring that you deliver the best possible care to those you care for from the moment they enter the world, to the moment they leave it and every stage in between.”
