Celebrating International Nurses Day

Wednesday 12th May 2021 marks International Nurses Day.

This day allows us to celebrate nurses and healthcare workers all over the world. This past year more than ever before, healthcare staff working on the frontline during the pandemic have shattered the stereotypes of nursing and demonstrated to the world the fundamental role they play in patients’ safety.

International Nurses Day is an extremely important date in the Bluestones Medical calendar. It allows us to say thanks and show our appreciation to the healthcare staff that we work with every day. We have spoken many times before about the importance of frontline workers which you can read here.

How we’re celebrating

To celebrate, we thought we would host a competition on our official Facebook and Instagram pages, giving nurses and healthcare workers the opportunity to win X2 £250 vouchers! We also videoed some of the team talking about why they are grateful for nurses and healthcare workers, and why they love working with them so much.

The world would be lost without nurses!

Since the Crimean war in 1853, nurses like Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole have been at the forefront of caring for patients in difficult and trying situations. These nursing pioneers helped showcase to the world how critically important nurses and healthcare workers are and today’s nurses are doing the same thing. In the last year, not only have nurses and healthcare workers been responsible for saving countless amounts of lives, but they have also had to take on the role of caring for people in situations where family and friends cannot be close because of the virus and risk of infection.

Bluestones Medical would like to say thanks

The selflessness, courage, compassion, and dedication of the Bluestones Medical candidates is something that amazes us each day. How amazing is it for us that the work we do to support the careers and wellbeing of our candidates helps them to provide the best possible care for their patients. What an amazing incentive to ensure that we are constantly giving our all, working hard and feeling passionate about what we do.

So today, on International Nurses Day, we would like to say thank you to every nurse and healthcare worker who works tirelessly to improve the lives of others. The Bluestone Medical team will be using today to reflect on what you do and how grateful we are for your dedication and kindness.

We also encourage all nurses and healthcare workers to use today to reflect. Reflect on what they have been through this past year, the lessons they have learnt, the lives they have enriched and the fact that without them, the world would not have been able to make it through this last year. If they did not realise how important they were to society before, they certainly should now. You can read our blog on the importance of reflection for nurses here.

Happy International Nurses Day! We hope your day is a special one and you get recognised and spoilt just like you deserve to.
