International Nurses Day

International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.

The theme for 2023 is Our Nurses. Our Future.

Our Nurses. Our Future is a global theme which sets out the future of nursing in order to address the global health challenges and improve global health for all. This includes your mental health.

Nurses are under pressure. A survey by the Nursing Times in 2021, revealed 44% of respondents described their mental health was ‘bad’ or ‘very bad’.

When your work is focused on caring for someone else, it’s important to remember to look after yourself. That includes recognising how the stresses of life both inside and outside of your work might affect your mental health.

A certain amount of pressure at work can be good, helping us to perform and to feel energised and ready to meet new challenges. But being under intense pressure for too long can lead to stress. You might start to feel more irritable, wound up, depressed or like your thoughts are racing and you can’t switch off.

We are here to help.

At Inspire, to celebrate International Nurses Day, we are highlighting some training you might be interested in providing your staff.

We understand the pressures working in the Health and Social Care can have on your wellbeing so below are some examples of the training we can provide:
