Happy and Healthy International Nurse Day

B&M scientific recognizes the contributions nurses make to society.

The pandemic has made it glaringly evident that the entire world has come together to fight a war against the coronavirus. Doctors and nurses are at the forefront of the battle. It is essential for us to show gratitude to the real heroes who put their lives on the line for us every day.

Today we celebrate healthcare workers, particularly our nurses.


International Nurses Day is commemorated every year on May 12, on the occasion of Florence Nightingale’s birthday. She is considered to be the founder of modern nursing.

Today, amid the pandemic, a healthcare worker describes a typical day in the life of a nurse on the Covid war-front to be filled with great uncertainty as they run a constant marathon.

“Every single shift has the potential to be momentous, exhilarating, exhausting, energizing. On any given day, nurses can see people at their weakest and most vulnerable, or at their strongest and most resolute. Besides, a single breach in infection prevention practice can cause life-threatening infections to a patient, especially for critical Covid patients, who are immuno-compromised considering the use of steroids, raised blood glucose levels, and use of medications that suppresses immunity,” the nurse explain.

According to the International Council of Nurses — which commemorates the day every year with the production and distribution of the International Nurses’ Day (IND) resources and evidence — the theme for the 2021 resource is ‘Nurses: A Voice to Lead — A vision for future healthcare’. This year, the council seeks to show “how nursing will look into the future as well as how the profession will transform the next stage of healthcare”.

Nurses are an integral part of the disaster management team.

“They are the ones who triage (sort) patients on their arrival, which requires the right knowledge and critical thinking, and depending on their assessment, the doctors begin treatment. Nurses are vital in mobilizing resources, ensuring appropriate patient monitoring, and providing the right care to needy patients. They are also a major part of decision-making when it comes to risk mitigation,” says the council.

In this pandemic, the doctors say infection-control nurses are empowered to collect and analyze data from Covid-19 patients. They are the ones who collate and send data to local authorities for notification of Covid-19 patients.

Nurses risk their lives and fear for the lives of their loved ones but are still there for those suffering in hospital. Thank you for your comforting words and for caring for others when they need you the most.

B & M Scientific would like to thank all the nurses around the world.
