It is known that the founder of modern nursing and the first professional nurse is Florence Nightingale, who first created the service of nurses. Since 1993, the International Day of the Nurse has been celebrated annually in the Russian Federation on May 12. In this connection, at the Pharmaceutical college of the Krasnoyarsk State Medical University, among the students of the Nursing department, events dedicated to the International Day of the Nurse are held annually. One of such events is a conference, which is held in the form of a project competition among first-year students on the basis of secondary general education and second-year students on the basis of basic general education. In 2022, a study was conducted at the college among 135 students of the 1st-4th year of the Nursing department, the purpose of which was to identify the degree of awareness of students in the field of the history of the creation of the Sisters of Mercy service and the International Day of the Nurse. The results of the survey showed good awareness among 76–97% of students
