Florence was born on 12 May 1820. On May 12, his birthday is celebrated as 'International Nurses Day' (World Nursing Day) in memory of Florence. Serving life and sick patients, Florence spent her childhood in the grip of sickness and physical weakness.

History- For the first time, the proposal to celebrate 'Nurses Day' was proposed by 'Dorothy Sutherland', an officer of the US Department of Health, Education and Welfare. US President D.D. 

Eisenhower provided recognition to celebrate it. This day was celebrated for the first time in the year 1953. The International Nurses Council celebrated this day for the first time in 1965.

It was decided in the year 1974 to celebrate the birth anniversary of the renowned nursing professional 'Florence Nightingale' on May 12 as International Nurses Day. It is said of Florence Nightingale, that she used to set up a hospital in the night with a lantern in her hands. 

In those days there were no electrical appliances, Florence used to be so worried about her patients that despite taking care of them all day, she roamed the hospital at night to see if anyone needed them.

He devoted his entire life to the service of the poor, the sick, and the afflicted. Along with this, he made nursing work a respectable place in society. Earlier, nursing work was seen from the eyes of Hikmat. Florence's tireless efforts in 1860 resulted in the founding of the Army Medical School. 

It was in this year that Florence established the Nightingale Training School. In the same year, Florence published a book titled Notes on Nursing. It is the first book in the world to be written for a nursing course. This day is celebrated in memory of 'Florence Nightingale', the mother of modern nursing, known as 'Lady with the Lamp'.

Nursing is considered the largest health profession. It is necessary to be well trained and experienced to take care of the patient through all aspects such as physical, mental, and social. 

Today, in the time of the Corona pandemic, nurses are also playing their role with quickness and achieving a place in the world by taking good care of the patients, and today, in the time of this Kovid pandemic, they are doing shoulder to shoulder with the doctors.
