Our Florence Nightingales are celebrating Nurses Week and we should all take note of these wonderful caregivers. So many in the Health Care system deserve recognition but it’s the Nurses who are on the front lines who deserve special credit.
Florence Nightingale remains a source of nursing inspiration today, despite how radically different health care is today in comparison. And while nursing has certainly evolved from when Nightingale was practicing – and continues to evolve, requiring more and different things from nurses in their practice – constants like the art of nursing, critical thinking, creativity and the caring Nightingale was such an advocate for, remain.
Regardless what capacity a nurse is working in – direct care, education, research or administration – every nurse has the chance to directly influence the health and wellness of people’s lives. So Today and all week let’s take time to salute the Special People we know as NURSE.
