Happy Birthday Florence Nightingale: International Nurses Day

We wanted to end Nurses Week on a birthday wish to the woman that founded what we now as modern nursing Florence Nightingale

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6, also known as National Nurses Day, through May 12, her birthday. All week we’ve featured nurses from the military to case management to nurses that volunteer and teach. We’ve also featured 2 nurses that blog regularly. They taught us a thing or two on how the medical field is using technology for patient care and what is happening with high-tech coding practices.

So, Happy Birthday Flo and thank you for paving the way for the exemplary nurses that take care of our country!

So never lose an opportunity of urging a practical beginning, however small, for it is wonderful how often in such matters the mustard-seed germinates and roots itself.

~ Florence Nightingale
