“Nursing is not for everyone. It takes a very strong, intelligent, and compassionate person to take on the ills of the world with passion and purpose and work to maintain the health and well-being of the planet” ― Donna Wilk Cardillo 

Celebrated on the birthday of Florence Nightingale, this Tuesday, May 12th, is International Nurses Day. As we all navigate our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, nurses, their courage and their sacrifices, are at the forefront of our minds. Join us as we honor nurses from the past and celebrate those currently working on the front lines of this health crisis.
