International Day of the Nurse is celebrated around the world every May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth.

This year we are holding an event on Monday 13th May at 4pm to commemorate this important day. The event will focus on: ‘Working globally as a nurse or allied health professional: opportunities in clinical care, teaching, research and policy’. We have invited an international speaker, Professor Debra Anderson from the Faculty of Health at the University of Technology Sydney and a host of internal speakers to showcase the diverse careers and achievements of our colleagues in the faculty.

The Nightingale Student Society would love for you to join them afterwards for free pizza in The Shed. They will have some arts and crafts activities for you to enjoy.
