International Nurses’ Day 2023


On Friday the 12th of May 2023, we mark International Nurses Day, a day celebrated around the world, which recognises the vital role nurses play in our healthcare systems.

The International Council of Nurses (ICN) has focused their 2023 theme on “Our Nurses. Our Future.” which aims to “ learn from the lessons of the pandemic and translate these into actions for the future that ensure nurses are protected, respected and valued”. The International Council of Nurses (ICN) supports this important day by producing a range of resources, evidence and case studies, which you can find here.

Regardless of setting or location – Nursing staff not only care for their patients, but also help support their patients’ loved ones. Within care homes and residential facilities, nursing staff provide a large variety of health and personal services for the aging population or people living with physical or mental conditions who require assistance. Not only do Nurses have the task of caring for residents, they may also be in charge of other staff and be responsible for ensuring the smooth running of day-to-day operations within the setting.

We, at Career Locum Group, would like to take this opportunity to thank all our nurses who work tirelessly to support our care groups across Scotland.
