On January 25, we bring you two important events of the day. National IV Nursing Day celebrates the efforts and hard works of Nurses. While Robert Burn Day asks us to ignite our creative self. With each passing day, let’s look into some of the under-appreciated works of well-deserved people.
National IV Nursing Day
If anything we learned in 2020, is the importance of a healthcare system. While we often credit doctors and surgeons for their diligence, many healthcare workers remain hidden from mainstream recognition. Some of them include IV Nurses working day and night to help patients in dire need of medical assistance.
Recognition is long overdue for the nurses who perform IV therapy
Reads the official IV Nurse Day proclamation. Set up in 1980, the U.S celebrates National IV Nurse Day on January 25. Every year, the House of Representatives designated this day to celebrate and appreciate the contributions of the nation’s infusion nurse specialists, as well as the Infusion Nurses Society. Infusion therapy nurses are an important part of the health care team that delivers the right dosage of drugs. It also prevents patients from catheter-related bloodstream infections.
How To Celebrate?
The theme for 2021 is “IV Nurses—Real. Life. Heroes,”. It acknowledges the importance of the role of the infusion nurse in the health care team. IV Nurse Day supports the advancement of the IV speciality. Infusion nursing group also celebrates forty years of continued education, advocacy, and career development. Celebrate and appreciate the healthcare providers. However, if you are one of them, we thank you for the support and kindness in the times of our need.
Robert Burn Day
On January 25, we celebrate creativity and imagination. Robert Burn Day, also known as Burns Night, celebrates works of Robert Burn. His poetry highlights important issues of the society where he lived. He also wrote some of the most identifiable poetry and song lyrics. Be it traditional ballads and love songs to ironic satires and thought-provocative poems. Let’s look into this day with more depth.
Robert Burn was a poet who wrote several poems highlighting political and civil problems. Also, ‘Auld Lang Syne,’ his famous poem sung at New Year’s Eve celebrations. Burns is also one of the main cultural symbols of Scotland and recognized among poets around the world. Initially, Robert Burns’ relatives held the first Burns dinner in Ayrshire, Scotland, on July 21, the anniversary of his death. The date was later changed to the 25th of January, marking his birthday.
How To Celebrate?
People and organizations worldwide, particularly in Australia, Canada, England, and the United States, organise Burns suppers. Men wear kilts, and women wear shawls, dresses, or clothing made of tartan. People enjoy holiday dinners. The popular beverage is whiskey.
