The year 2012 marks the centenary of International Nurses Day. Nurses refer to the skilled professionals in nursing. The profession of nursing was started by Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), a British nursing pioneer who established the first school of modern nursing. In honor of the significant contribution that Nightingale, reputed as the "Lady with the Lamp," made in nursing, her birthday, May 12, is celebrated worldwide as the International Nurses Day, aiming to advocate, inherit, and promote the pioneer's humanistic spirit of overcoming difficulties to help the sick and the wounded through dedication and sacrifice.

China National Philatelic Corporation will issue a FDC and a commemorative cancellation respectively.
