International Nurses Day celebrated in GMC-KHAMMAM

International Nurses Day is celebrated each year on the 12th of May, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. 204 years after the birth of the ‘the Lady with the Lamp,’ we recognize this ‘social reformer who was the foundational philosopher of modern nursing,’ by continuing to advance her cause.

This year, the theme of International Nurses Day (IND) reminds us all of the “the economic power of care.” In the words of the International Council of Nurses, “despite being the backbone of health care, nursing often faces financial constraints and societal undervaluation. IND 2024 aims to reshape perceptions, demonstrating how strategic investment in nursing can bring considerable economic and societal benefits.”

On this day Dr. S. Rajeshwar Rao, MD., Principal, Government Medical College, Khammam along with Medical Superintendent (MCH), RMOs and Nursing Superintendents and all nursing officers celebrated the day in Pragnya Hall in GMC, Khammam.
