Celebrating International Nurses Week: Empowering Nurses & Strengthening Healthcare

Back to Market Insights

This International Nurses Week (May 6th-12th, 2024), we at Eligo Medical join the global chorus in celebrating the incredible nurses who are the backbone of healthcare. The theme for this year is "the economic power of care", which highlights the need for nursing and nurse care to be seen as an investment, and perfectly captures the vital role nurses play in ensuring the well-being of patients globally.


A Legacy of Care: Florence Nightingale & the Birth of Modern Nursing

The very concept of celebrating nurses has a rich history. It can be traced back to Florence Nightingale, the visionary founder of modern nursing.  Nightingale's tireless efforts during the Crimean War (1854-1856) transformed healthcare practices by emphasising sanitation, hygiene, and patient-centred care.  Her dedication to improving patient outcomes and her groundbreaking work in statistical analysis to measure the impact of nursing interventions laid the groundwork for the professional nursing we know today.


Celebrating Our Nurses:

We are incredibly fortunate to work with a network of talented, dedicated nurses who carry Florence Nightingale's legacy forward. Your compassion, skill, and commitment to patient care inspire us daily.  We see firsthand the long hours you dedicate, the challenges you overcome, and the unwavering dedication you bring to your profession.
