National Nurses week starts from 6 th – 12 th May ending on Florence Nightingale’s birthday. It is that time of year when medical institutions join together to celebrate the work of nurses. Nurses are the backbone of medical care and they spend more time with patients than doctors. They administer the treatment advised by the doctors and monitor progress. They provide great emotional support to the patient. They work long shifts and sacrifice their holidays for patient care. Needless to say they are anasset to any healthcare organization.
Starting from Florence Nightingale who established nursing as a profession nursing has been a female dominated area. The term itself is derived from women’s rate as mothers and nurturers. Out of every 10 registered nurses 9 are females, in our hospital.
Day in and Day out the compassion and kindness provided to their patients is in measurable.
We are honored to salute nursing as a profession and hence by the sheer number of women in it , to women power.
