“Nurses dispense comfort, compassion and caring with or without even a prescription.”-Val Saintsbury
On May 12th, the world celebrates one of the most trusted and honored professions by observing International Nurses Day as a commemoration to Florence Nightingale’s birth anniversary. Florence Nightingale was born on May 12th, 1820, who is known as the founder of the modern nursing system.
We Celebrate your Happiness!!
In 1820, Florence Nightingale was born in Florence of Italy. In the Crimean War, she worked at the British base hospital. She improved hygiene and unsanitary conditions which reduced the British death count by two-thirds. Not only she was an excellent nurse, but her writing revolutionized the global health care systems. Later in 1860, she also founded the St.Thomas Hospital and Nightingale Training School for Nurses. On August 13, 1910, she demised in London. Florence Nightingale showed the world the significance of a nurse. So, to highlight the importance of the crucial role played by nurses to provide excellent health care services ICN established the Nurses day on her birth date.
How many of us make a difference in someone’s life EVERY DAY How many of our friends and family can do that?! But nurses, they do that every day with a smile. Nurses are one of the largest and most vital workforces in healthcare. With the ever-changing processes and continuing advances in hospitals, they still need to meet the expectations of both hospital management and patients whilst providing even more complex patient care. Nursing is a passionate profession. It is the profession that requires not only motivation, drive, knowledge, and skills. It is the one profession that requires one to take heart, to use his compassion in rendering genuine, altruistic care to different people no matter what race, color, age, sex, gender identity, nationality, culture, language, and ethnicity, whoever they are. It is the profession whose sole purpose is to provide “care”.
Nurses care for more than one patient and to them every single one of them are important, they never give up on a patient. Nurses sacrifices their meal time, clean your loved one’s waste, give up their time to go home early so that they can fully maximize their care for their patients and also have crazy work shifts. Despite getting shouted and scolded at by patients and doctors, nurses still continue caring for their patients because they know that that is the right thing to do. Nurses are there for you when everyone else ostracizes you.
“Nursing is the profession where you see people in white or in scrubs smiling seemingly like angels, rendering care to their clients; little do people know that these very people have sacrificed so much of themselves just to answer that calling to serve humanity and preserve life. Little do people know how their hands save lives, how their words brighten up days and provide hope, how their love for humanity has provided them with the bravery to already risk a part of their selves, all in the name of service and altruism. So, the next time you see a nurse, please say thank you. It means so much to them.”
