International Nurses Day - May 12th

International Nurses Day (IND) is an international day observed around the world on May 12th (the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth) each year, to mark the contributions that nurses make to society. 

Nurses have an enormous amount of knowledge and many diverse skills they spend years perfecting and developing, all the time working in decidedly tough environments where extreme stress is just a part of the job. 

To celebrate this day, the Library would like top remind you of some of the excellent online resources we provide, including RCNi, (the Royal College of Nursing Publishing), the British Nursing IndexIntermid, Internurse and MA Healthcare and, of course, MEDLINE.
