florenceInternational Nurses Day is celebrated every year on May 12th and in Belize, the Ministry of Health joins the International Council of Nurses and all nurses across the country in celebration of Nurses’ Week, which is being observed this week from May 11th to the 16th. International Nurses Day was observed on May 12th, 2014. This year, the week is being celebrated under the theme: “Nurses: A Force for Change a Vital Resource for Health”.  Health regions across the country have a weeklong series of activities including church services, trainings, social events, health awareness in schools and publicity appearances on media shows.

The main activity will be the National Nurses Conference to be held this Friday, May 16th in Dangriga Town. In January 1974, officials decided to celebrate the occasion on this date to coincide with the anniversary

of the birth of Florence Nightingale, widely considered as the founder of modern nursing. We would like to join the public and health department in wishing Nurses across Belize a happy week and express our appreciation or their dedication to the public.
