It's International Nurses Day

It's International Nurses Day

Have you heard that today is International Nurses Day? It’s true, every year the world comes together to celebrate nurses. However, May 12th is more than just a date on the calendar; it's a moment to recognise the dedication, commitment and passion of these healthcare heroes. Here at Access Courses Online, we're joining the celebration and acknowledging the profound impact nurses have on individuals, families, and communities. 

This year's theme, "Our Nurses. Our Future. The economic power of care," sheds light on the significant but often overlooked role that nurses play in our healthcare system. As Dr. Pamela Cipriano, president of the International Council of Nurses (ICN) stated: “despite being the backbone of healthcare, nursing often faces financial constraints and societal undervaluation.” This theme is important because it aims to shift perspective - nursing is an investment, not a cost.  

Here at Access Courses Online, we couldn’t agree more with this! We recognise that nurses are the backbone of the medical profession, providing compassionate care and support to patients in their times of need. Their dedication, expertise, and kindness is nothing short of heroic.  

As part of our commitment to empowering the next generation of nurses, we offer accessible, remote, and comprehensive education that prepares you for a fulfilling career in nursing! Our courses cover a wide range of topics, are designed to fit around your life, and even award UCAS points, helping you secure your place in university. 

Plus, studying to be a nurse with us comes with more advantages: 

  • Flexibility: Our online courses allow you to learn at your own pace and balance your studies with other commitments, making education accessible to all. 
  • Accessibility: With our online platform, geography is no longer a barrier. Students from all corners of the UK can access quality education in nursing. 
  • No Prior Qualifications Required: We believe education should be inclusive, which is why we don’t require any previous qualifications. We simply require dedication and passion. 
  • Supportive Community: Students have the opportunity to connect with peers and experienced instructors, which creates a collaborative and supportive learning environment. 

By investing in education and training for future nurses, we're not just preparing individuals for a career; we're investing in the future of healthcare and the well-being of our communities. 

So cheers to all the nurses out there – thank you for the work you do. You are the backbone of our healthcare system, and we celebrate you today and every day!
