International Nurses Day

Tuesday 12 May 2015, 10am-4pm
Venue: St Bede's Conference Centre, St Raphael's Hospice, London Road, Cheam, Surrey, SM3 9DX

Spire St Anthony's Hospital is holding an event to celebrate International Nurses Day in honour of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, born on the 12 May 1820.

The event will be held at the St Bede's Conference Centre which is located behind St Raphael's Hospice. Please call in through the day to help us celebrate, where we will have stalls selling cakes, gifts and beauty products as well as offering pampering sessions as sometime nurses need nursing too!

The day will also consist of the following learning and recruitment opportunities for nurses:

Pampering Education Nurse Recruitment
eyebrow threading      
hand decontamination    
working in the private sector
sharps awareness
newly qualified programme
return to nursing campaign
body shop


“Every year the nurses take over our conference centre for the day and during their breaks they can enjoy having a ‘makeover’ by The Body Shop, their nails done or a massage. There were stalls selling various items, from jewellery to handmade greeting cards and a free raffle, with prizes of cakes, wine and vouchers to thank the nurses for all their hard work.”
