It’s National Nurses Week

It’s National Nurses Day and the beginning of National Nurses Week which concludes on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Nightingale was a celebrated social reformer, statistician and is known as the founder of modern nursing and was dubbed “The Lady with the Lamp” because of her habit of making rounds at night.

Today kicks off our celebration nurses who are on the frontlines every day caring for others. In addition to spending their careers tending to patients, many nurses extend this caring into their personal lives. Excellent examples of this desire to provide for others are RNs, Joslyn Lewis and Sothy Shields (pictured). They’ve started a group called the Bumblebees of Hope which has been busy sewing and delivering masks to front-line workers throughout Northern California. 🐝
