Celebrating Nurses Week,Celebrating an icon: Florence NightingaleDate Posted: 11/May/2019
Val Saints bury said and i quote ''A nurse dispense comfort,compassion and care without even a pescription''.
The nursing profession has an history,it has a background,and as we go down the memory lane,we find an icon worthy of recognition. A passionate and Sacrificial individual who gave her strength to ensure the sick lacks nothing except their sickness! Ladies and gentlemen,I speak about Florence Nightingale.
Florence Nightingale was born on May 12,1820.She was a British Nurse,a statiscian,and social reformer who was the foundational philosopher of modern Nursing. She spent many hours in the wards and her night rounds giving care to the wounded soldiers and that gave her the name 'Lady with the lamp'. She was the first woman awarded the order of merit in 1907. May 6th-12th observed as the International Nurses week commemorate with her birth and celebrates the important role of Nurses in the health Care.
Nightingale died on August 13,1910. She died but her impacts lives on, WE ARE THE DESCENDANTS OF NIGHTINGALE! We are strong,vibrant,passionate and sacrificial to humanity.
Florence Nightingale said and i quote: "Nursing is one of the fine arts: I had almost said the finest of the fine arts".
May i Conclude by stating the chorus of the Nurses anthem:
Nurses are great,
Nurses are caring,
An epitome of humility in service
We are specially ordain for this profession
Yes am proud to be a Nurse!!!!
