They are the front liners of healthcare, the work horses in any setting. Their role within the care team cannot be understated. In fact, over the years, their role is expanding as their trainings become more sophisticated, and their capabilities expand.
Many of their deeds are often unseen as they execute the care of the sick tirelessly. Patients are on many occasions closer to them than they are to their doctors.
They deserve to lead. This year’s theme is “Health is a human right”. As the poster from the International Council of Nurses depict, “No matter the location, no matter the setting, healthcare should be accessible to all” and nurses are at the forefront of care always.
