Nurses' Day events to take place across the London region

Throughout the month of May, RCN branches across London will hold special celebratory events

6 May 2016

Nurses’ Day takes place on 12 May each year, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. Throughout the month, RCN London Branches will be hosting celebratory events for its members.

2016 is the Royal College of Nursing’s centenary year, which makes our Nurses’ Day celebrations even more special. It’s a chance to celebrate the remarkable difference nursing staff around the world make every day. It’s also a time for patients to thank nursing staff for their dedication and care.
