2010 International Year of the Nurse

The 2010 International Year of the Nurse (IYNurse) is the centennial year of the death of the founder of modern nursing - Florence Nightingale (1820-1910). To celebrate, the 2010 IYNurse was established to actively involve the world's nurses - estimated to be more than 15 million - in a celebration of commitment to bring health to their communities, locally and worldwide.

Nurses are the heart of healthcare and they touch our lives everyday. 2010 is the International Year of the Nurse - a collaborative initiative that is recognizing nurses for their contribution to making a healthier world for us all.

The following video was created by HeartMath in celebration of nurses everywhere that are making a world of difference with their care. Join us in honoring nurses by giving more of your care to others whether it be a family member, a co-worker of a neighbor. Share your care and pass this video on. Remember, your care can make a difference.
