Celebrating International Nurses Day and Honoring All Forensic Healthcare Professionals


Today, on International Nurses Day, we take a moment to celebrate the tireless dedication, skill, and resilience of our nursing professionals within the UK Association of Forensic Nurses and Paramedics (UKAFNP) and wider forensic healthcare arena. This day holds a special place in our hearts, as it gives us an opportunity to recognise the integral role that nurses play in providing forensic healthcare services, not just in the UK but across the world.

Forensic nurses are at the forefront of compassionate patient care, often working with individuals who are experiencing some of the most difficult moments of their lives. Whether it’s providing physical care, emotional support, or serving as an advocate for the patient, our forensic nurses consistently display a dedication to duty that is nothing short of remarkable.

Today, as we honour the remarkable work of our nurses, let’s also extend our heartfelt appreciation to the paramedics and midwives who, alongside our nurses, form the backbone of our forensic healthcare services. Your tireless dedication and commitment to providing high-quality, compassionate care do not go unnoticed.

On this International Nurses Day, we say a huge thank you to all our forensic healthcare professionals. Your work is invaluable, your contributions immeasurable, and your impact profound. Together, you are shaping a safer and more compassionate world, and for that, we are immensely grateful.

Happy International Nurses Day!
