As with Care Day, the date of International Nurses Day coincides with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, a British nurse who cared for the injured during the Crimean War. 

She was determined to appease the suffering of the wounded and dying and her actions led to the start of the international Red Cross. On this day each year activities in healthcare are organized worldwide.
