Happy Nurses Day and Nurses Week!
In the U.S. today is Nurses Day. International Nurses Day is May 12, the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale.
Celebrate being a nurse… Even if no one has done anything to acknowledge Nurses Day or Nurses Week. Let’s face it, some people are just not good at planning parties, events or even saying Thank You! All too often, those are the people who are the administrative staff, managers, supervisors etc. who should be in charge of marking this event. Next time, you need to step up and take charge so something gets done.
Meanwhile…whatever is or isn’t planned today….celebrate YOU. You make a difference in someone’s life everyday!!! Stop and say thanks to yourself. Do something for you today.
And tell another nurse, thanks for being a nurse too.
Teddy bear is available from Cafe Press. Another version (below right) is available from The Nursing Site Shop at Cafe Press. Both shops support The Nursing Site Blog and The Nursing Site.
I missed the original day but three cheers for all nurses out there. I find that some nurses have more knowledge than doctors because they actually take the time to see what is wrong with the patient by caring. Doctors just tend to plow ahead to the next visitor.
HAPPY NURSES WEEK!!!
