Many homes made creative displays to decorate the home for the day and each and every home expressed their thanks in their own meaningful and special ways.

At Jubilee Court in Hucknall, residents read all about Florence Nightingale and enjoyed spending time with their nurses and wearing the uniform too.

A spokesperson for Runwood Homes, which runs Jubilee Court, said: “We loved being able to feature and celebrate their talented team of nurses and very much recognise and appreciate the inspiring work they do every day.

Meanwhile, over at Park House Care Home in Bulwell, each nurse was provided with a nurses gratitude kit packed full of the essentials every nurse needs for a busy day of clinical duties.

The touching poem read; ‘Tea bag, you are tea-rrific! Marshmallow for bouncing back from difficult situations, chocolate for your sweet nature, Clip for your leadership and holding the team together, heart thank you from the bottom of mine, and wine, drink from me for all that you do.’

Anne said: “International Nurses Day is an opportunity to make a fuss of our nurses.

"I wanted them to know how appreciated they are by everyone who works with them and also by the people they support.

"Despite working through what can at times be challenging circumstances our nurses always finish their day with a smile.

"They deserve to be treated, which is why I put together the gratitude kit, something just for them to say thank you.”
