Year of the Nurse and Midwife
There was double cause for celebration this year, as Year of the Nurse and Midwife has also been extended through 2021, with focus on enabling professionalism. Planned celebrations for the first ever Year of the Midwife were curtailed in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
