The UK’s most senior nurses have highlighted the “extraordinary” efforts and contributions made by members of the nursing profession, in a special tribute to colleagues on International Nurses’ Day 2022.

The four chief nursing officers (CNOs) for England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland have today passed on their thanks to nurses who they recognised have endured “incredible challenges” and “very difficult” times during the past few years amid Covid-19.
