International Nurses Day 2023

Friday 12 May is International Nurses Day, celebrating the contributions of nurses to healthcare throughout the world.

Here at Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust, we have around 70 nurses working to deliver research as well as clinical nurses who lead or support studies as part of their work.

Some of them have shared their experiences to show how their roles make a difference to people’s lives. If you’re a nurse interested in adding research to your career, help and support is available from our Centre for Clinical and Care Research. And if you’re interested in joining our delivery team, vacancies are advertised on
