IMA lauds nurses on International Nurses Day
 Says nurses are the backbone of healthcare and it is important for physicians to take their responsibility

New Delhi, 11 May, 2017: Nurses are the backbone of any healthcare setting. They are the underdogs who play a key role in all medical institutions, and are responsible for the welfare and recovery of patients. Recognizing this, the International Nurses Day is celebrated every year all around the world on the 12th of May to commemorate the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale and mark the contribution of nurses towards people's health. The theme for 2017 is Nursing: A voice to lead - Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
 
The MCI code of ethics states that 'physicians should recognize and promote the practice of different paramedical practices such as nursing and seek their cooperation wherever required'.
