One week every year is celebrated by nurses all over the world as National Nurses week.
May the 12th is the actual Celebration Day.
This is the birth date of our founder Florence Nightingale.
Miss Nightingale was born in Florence Italy to well-to-do English parents.
She brought ethics and standards of care to the soldiers of the Crimean War back in 1856.
Due to her dedication she helped to reduce the mortality rate of soldiers by the simple means of better nutrician and hygiene.
Known as "The Lady with The Lamp" Florence was a woman of Faith.
She spoke a number of languages and read the New Testament in the original Greek.
Nurses: Beneficence Non Maleficence, Above all. Do No Harm.
Acts 20:35. "It is more blessed to give than receive."

An author since 2012 and retired Specialist Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our two little dogs. Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. B.N (Aus) B.S.N (U.S.A) Bible College Graduate. Lover of People. WORK PLACE HISTORY... 1.
