Happy National Nurses Day!

In 1860, Florence Nightingale established the foundation for modern day nursing by opening the first nursing school at St. Thomas Hospital in London. Nightingale was a pioneer in the field of nursing, educating and paving the way for this important and invaluable career. Spending most of her time caring for the wounded soldiers of the Crimean War, she became known as “The Lady with the Lamp”.

Today, nursing has become a staple in any medical specialty and without the hard work and dedication of our nurses, nurse assistants, and nursing staff, medicine would not be where it is today. A hospital without nurses is like a car without wheels. Nurses are the foundation that hold hospitals together, providing compassionate and empathetic care; qualities that seem to be lost in most other occupations.

I would like to dedicate today’s post to celebrate the wonderful accomplishments and dedication of all the world’s nurses. Thank you so much for your commitment to the medicine and for always being the patient’s strongest advocate. Without you, we would not be where we are at today.

Also, thank you Mom for being the strongest, most dedicated, compassionate, and caring nurse I know. Any patient or family member lucky enough to cross your path will forever be grateful for your commitment to nursing.
