SUPPORT FOR NURSES – LOOKING BACK AT INTERNATIONAL NURSES DAY

2020 has illuminated how integral the medical profession really is to society. We need it to function. Medics bring life into the world, heal and unfortunately deal with situations unfathomable to most. 

There was an outpouring of love and support on International Nurses Day, possibly the most celebrated day in history! It was social media madness.

Banksy painted nurses equivalent to childhood superheroes, replacing well known and idolised Batman, with a real nursing hero in the classic batman pose, and cape; changing perceptions around the world. 

The public showed a different type of admiration and gratitude for the front- line workers, giving 110% each day, whose specialist knowledge is being tested to the maximum.
