International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth, the women who started the nursing career.
The theme for 2016 is Nurses: A Force for Change: Improving health systems' resilience.
As part of the global community, the nurses in Morobe came together yesterday to celebrate the day at the ANGAU Memorial General Hospital.
The occasion was also used to raise funds towards the 13th Nurses Research Symposium to be held in Lae in October 2016.
Board and management were present to witness the event and staff put up stalls to carry out awareness on various health issues and domestic violence.
