Save the date: National Nurses Day – 12 May

You may be aware that May 12th is National Nurses Day, marking the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.

As 2020 is also the #YearoftheNurseandMidwife, Scottish Care will be celebrating this occasion by encouraging care homes to hold a coffee morning on 12 May to show their appreciation of nurses and to tweet using the hashtag #carenursescot.

In the afternoon, our Transforming Workforce Lead for Nursing – Jacqui Neil, will host a celebratory event/conference in the Marriott Hotel, Glasgow from 1:00pm – 4:00pm with a range of different nursing speakers. This event is free to attend and we would like to invite nurses working in the social care sector to come along. Programme and more details to follow.
