Nurses Day is celebrated on May 12th each year and is a day to celebrate and recognize nurses for their hard work and the difference they make in people’s lives every day. May 12 was chosen because it is Florence Nightingale’s, the founder of modern nursing, birthday. It is a great day to raise awareness of the role nurses play in maintaining public health. Nurses work hard and deserve a day to be recognized for their healthcare work. Read on for some great ideas for nurses’ day gifts for the nurses in your life.
