Basseterre,St.Kitts May 12 2020 (SKNVIBES)
The following is a statement by Simone Harris, President of the Nevis Nurses Association (NNA), on the occasion of International Nurses Day 2020 which is observed on May 12th.
My dear colleagues,
A voice to lead “Nursing the World to Health” – ICN [International Council of Nurses] “2020 Year of the Nurse and Midwife” 200 years of making a difference – WHO [World Health Organization].
We have never seen a theme that suits an event like the two above. This year is supposed to be a celebration for our hard work over the years from since our founder Florence Nightingale started this noble profession. We are here today facing a global pandemic that brought about serious challenges, and now we are looking at a world never seen before. Can you imagine the critical role of nurses that had to be brought into focus by this COVID-19 pandemic?
