Good morning all, today 12 May is International Nurses day.

It is also Florence Nightingales birthday, The choice of this date was to celebrate the International nurses day was to honour the founder of modern nursing. The first nurses day was in 1965, so it is not a new celebration. In the UK there will be a service at Westminster Abbey during the service a lamp is taken from the Nurses' Chapel in the Abbey and handed from one nurse to another, finally to the Dean, who places it on the High Altar. This signifies the passing of knowledge from one nurse to another.

Personally I think nurses deserve more than a day of recognition, for the work they have done during this pandemic they need to be amply rewarded.

What are your thoughts on rewarding nurses for the work they do ?

The best reward would be to clamp down on the bullying culture within the NHS, which many nurses experience. Reply

My mum was a nurse and I never met anyone who worked harder, She had 12 kids and had a nursing home to run, but she did it and she was brilliant at it and so I'd love to big up my mum we love you n miss you so so much and I know you're upstairs kicking it with old Florence up there!!! I'd also like to big up all the NHS nurses and all the staff within the NHS, I don't know where we would be without you all, so thank you and I'd also like to wish you all a Happy International Nurses's Day Reply

Happy International Nurse's Day! Thanks for sharing this Chris, it was great to learn about what the passing of the lamp signifies :) Reply

But I thought that they were already rewarded Chris, I'm sure that there aren't that many volunteers around. Even the extra they are being put forward for due to the pandemic would be controversial due to them dropping almost all non-covid related work and having secure incomes throughout. But I do agree with Sue that they would be far more worthy recipients than Boris and his extravagancies. Reply

How would you reward them Chris? I do think it's wrong Boris Johnson spent all that money on doing up his home and going on a luxurious holiday and then awards nurses a pityful increase in wages. That seriously needs too stop Reply
