Heartwarming tribute to celebrate International Nurses Day

It’s International Nurses Day today, and it couldn’t have come at a more important time, as the world battles coronavirus.

Nurses are celebrated worldwide every year on May 12, which is the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.

Nightingale is known as the founder of modern nursing, after caring for wounded soldiers in the Crimean war back in the 1850s.


Nurses around the world are today are dealing with coronavirus, a global pandemic.

Many people are using the day to acknowledge the hard work of nurses, as frontline health workers in this global battle.

On an Australian front, beloved singer Delta Goodrem has released a song as tribute to nurses.

Staff from St Vincent Hospital in Sydney are also part of the video, which can be watched below.

“I am so honoured to sing from our hearts with the @stvincentshospitalsydney nurses to celebrate International Nurses Day.

“Nurses are the first in line to care for us. They are our communicators and companions in a crisis.

“They are teachers, advocates, critical thinkers, researchers and innovators. I am always struck by their humility, their humanity and their commitment to looking after us.

“You are the heart of soul of the Hospitals and we thank you,” Delta’s Instagram post reads.
