Our Aim

IND 2021 aims to look back and reflect on the impact of COVID-19 on the health system and the nursing profession and how the future of healthcare might be affected.

The International Council of Nurses (ICN) believes that it is vitally important to show the world who nurses are and what they do. ICN wants the voice of nursing to be heard around the globe, to spread the word about our great profession and how it contributes to the wellbeing of the world. As carers, healers, educators, leaders and advocates, nurses are fundamental in the provision of safe, accessible and affordable care. Through this International Nurses Day report, we use the authentic voices of the world’s nurses to give the world a glimpse into this wonderful, innovative and vital profession.
