National Nursies Day, an annual celebration of nursing, is happening this year, and you might be surprised to learn it is being held at hospitals across the country.
The holiday, which commemorates the beginning of the United States’ national nurses’ strike in April of last year, marks the beginning for nurses in all 50 states and is a chance to connect with colleagues and celebrate the nurses who have been working so hard for so long.
To help you understand how nurses can participate in the event, we’ve gathered some facts and figures from nurses and healthcare professionals who work in hospitals across Canada, the United Kingdom and the United states to help you plan for the day.
The United States: In the United State, nurses are expected to work an average of 8.6 hours per day on average, according to the National Nursys Day Commission.
While this may sound high, it is a fraction of the average workweek of nurses in other countries.
For example, in Germany, nurses work an 11.6 hour workweek.
In Canada, nurses typically work an hour less than that, but nurses in the United Arab Emirates, France, Spain and Italy are expected as well, said Dr. Elizabeth O’Brien, executive director of the National Nurse Health Alliance, an advocacy group.
While nurses are not required to be on call, many work during the day, and many have a busy schedule of events, such as attending conferences, volunteering at their local nursing home, and going to the movies and concerts.
Some nurses in these countries say they take pride in their commitment to their profession, even though it is not mandatory, said Julie Jau, a nurse in the Philippines who works for a hospital.
She said she is always looking to improve her skills and improve the quality of care she receives.
While her fellow nurses are focused on their own health, she is more focused on her nursing colleagues.
Jau, who works at a hospital in Manila, said she feels like she has a higher standard of care as a nurse.
She said she works as hard as possible to keep up with her colleagues, and she looks forward to sharing what she has learned in her work with them.
The Philippines: The Philippines is a small island nation of only 3.3 million people in the Indian Ocean, with a population of around 2 million.
It has a population density of less than 0.5 per cent.
The island nation, which is known for its traditional medicine and tropical foods, is a destination for people from around the world, especially from the United Nations, said Elizabeth Burdge, associate professor of nursing at the University of Toronto’s Osgoode Hall Law School.
Burdge said the Philippines is one of the most economically vibrant countries in the world because of its rich natural resources, but it also has an underdeveloped healthcare system.
The country has a high level of infant mortality, high rates of infant and maternal mortality and the highest maternal mortality rate in the Asia-Pacific region.
Jaurie O’Hara, a nursing professor at the U.S. Naval Medical School, said the number of deaths in the country is much higher than in other Asian nations, which has a lower level of social stigma and is also a destination country for tourists, especially those coming from the U to visit the Philippines.
She says the United Nation’s Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health has highlighted the importance of improving maternal and newborn health.
O’HARA said the United Federation of Workers (UFW) has been organizing nurses at hospitals in the U., and has also been organizing nursing in the province of Leyte.UFW has been working with nurses at the hospital, and they are organizing to help improve their quality of life and to have their pay increased, she said.
Jakob Luebbers, executive officer of the UFW, said that the union is also looking into other ways that nurses can improve their living conditions.
The nurses have also been protesting at the National Council for Peace, he said.
