Year of the Nurse and Midwife

2020 is the year of the nurse and midwife in honour of the 200th birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale.

Nurses and midwives are invaluable, devoting their lives to the health of others all over the world. 2020 is a year to celebrate their accomplishments and honour those nurses and midwives making a difference in people’s lives.

In 2020, the NSWNMA will highlight the enormous sacrifices made by our members and the critical role they play in achieving universal healthcare.
