Sunday 12 May 2019



Let's celebrate International Nurses Day together!

The ACN National Nurses Breakfast is hosted each year in celebration of International Nurses Day (IND) on 12 May. The campaign encourages nurses and their supporters to host a breakfast or get-together at their workplace, university or community centre to celebrate the invaluable contribution nurses make to the health of our society. This year’s theme is “Nurses: A voice to lead – Health for All“.

With 12 May falling on a Sunday in 2019, celebrations are encouraged between Friday 10 May and Tuesday 14 May.

Please register below to receive a hosting kit to help you celebrate International Nurses Day. To receive a hosting kit you must be registered by no later than Sunday 28 April. The kits will be delivered before 9 May.


The International Council of Nurses commemorates this important day with the production and distribution of the IND resources and evidence.
