NURSES in Labasa took to the streets today to celebrate and mark the International Nurses Day Celebrations.

A banner bearing the theme of this year’s celebrations ‘Nursing: The Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit’ was taken through town from Y-Corner through the Friendly North Hotel as nurses sang and cheered.

May 12  marks the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the Pioneer of Nursing.

The day falls on a Sunday this year so nurses in the North celebrated it today.
