International Nurses Day 2024

Published on


On 12 May, The Union celebrates the vital role nurses play in the fight against tuberculosis (TB) and lung disease, which is often undervalued.

International Nurses Day 2024 aims to reshape perceptions of nursing, demonstrating how strategic investment in nursing can bring considerable economic and societal benefits. 

The Union recognises the importance of the nursing profession in TB prevention, diagnosis, treatment management, and much more. Prof Guy Marks, President of The Union, says: “In order to support nurses to deliver the best possible care to their local communities in the most effective and safest way for them, The Union provides a variety of evidence-based resources and learning opportunities tailored to nurses.”
