This weekend nurses all over the world are celebrating the International Nurses Day initiated by the International Council of Nurses (ICN). This special day for all nurses takes place on Saturday May 12th, the birthday of Florence Nightingale.
Florence Nightingale was a trailblazing figure in nursing who greatly affected 19th- and 20th-century policies around proper care. She was known for her night rounds to aid the wounded, establishing her image as the ‘Lady with the Lamp.’
[…] “Live your life while you have it. Life is a splendid gift. There is nothing small in it. Far the greatest things grow by God’s law out of the smallest. But to live your life, you must discipline it.” […] Florence Nightingale
do not muse
over things you cannot see–
smile at what is here
