Since 1965, the International Council of Nurses (ICN) has celebrated Nurses Day on 12 May. During this day, the International Nurses' Day Kit (prepared by the ICN), which contains educational and public information materials, is distributed for use by nurses everywhere.

You have taken an enormous amount of responsibility by agreeing to give a speech on this day but it should also be seen as a privilege to represent such a worthwhile cause. The first thing to do is take a deep breath and exhale slowly. Understanding your audience is one of the most important factors for giving a successful speech. It enables you to talk more in-depth and connect with your spectators on another level.

So, before you begin writing, do some research - think about the reasons why nurses choose this profession and why they are proud to do what they do. Is it because it is a rewarding role and they get enjoyment and fulfilment helping others? Talk directly to nurses to give you first-hand answers. You could also include a short story or two and get quotes from patients to reflect the importance nurses have in society. Nurses do not always get appreciated for their hard work so let them know their efforts are not wasted.

Try to remain enthusiastic during your speech and remember to smile. Another tip is to maintain eye contact throughout (to help your audience feel connected to you) and above all, remember to breathe as this helps to control nerves! Speaking in front of others can be a daunting and frightening task, but preparing your speech well in advance can help keep those nerves at bay.

12th May is International Nurses Day, so you should say something like 'I'm proud to be a nurse and its a very rewarding job...'
