International Nurses day - May 12

International Nurses day - May 12

Today is the birthday of Florence Nightingale,(12 may 1820 - 13 August 1910), the founder of modern Nursing. In January 1974, 12th May was chosen for International Nurses Day, as it is the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale.  The International Council of Nurses prepares and distributes the International Nurses' Day Kit. The kit contains educational and public information materials, for use by nurses everywhere.


Siddha concept about Nurses

According to siddha system of medicine the complete healthcare includes four factors -
1. The Patient
2. The Physician
3. The Medical Attendant
4. The Medicine
"Uttavan theerppaan marunthuzhai chelavan
appaal naalkootre marunth"
                         - Thiruvalluvar
So with out the caring nurses the healthcare system is incomplete.
In this day of Nurses, we have to give a hearty salute to all Nurses in the world.
