Saying thank you on International Nurses' Day 2019

To mark International Nurses' Day on 12 May, we would like to thank all the nurses caring for people with lymphoma.

International Nurses Day 2019

Sunday 12 May is International Nurses' Day – a worldwide celebration of the nursing profession, held on the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.

The day celebrates the contribution that nurses make. We’d like to say a special thank you to all the nurses who care for people with lymphoma. We hear on a daily basis about the difference that nurses make to people’s lives.

We also appreciate all the ways that nurses support the work we do and help us in our mission to make sure that no one faces lymphoma alone. 

Only yesterday, two clinical nurse specialists gave fascinating talks at our National Conference in London to over 200 people affected by lymphoma.

We also rely on nurses to help review and distribute our lymphoma information and to support our Live your Life workshops held throughout the UK to support people living with and beyond lymphoma.

Very useful having the cancer support nurse at the group. She was very knowledgeable and had plenty of time to answer everybody's queries.

For more than 11 years, we have been supporting nurses through our dedicated education and training events. Our highly regarded lymphoma-specific training programmes are recognised as a valuable contribution towards nurse’s continuous development (CPD).

On Sunday 14 July, as part of our Lymphoma Management Course at Keble College, Oxford, nurses and pharmacists are invited to attend our well respected annual masterclass for clinical nurse specialists and other senior nursing colleagues working in the field of haemato-oncology. This course will provide a unique insight into the treatment and management of lymphomas and CLL and is a great opportunity to network and share best practice.
We hope to see many of our wonderful nurse colleagues there!
