National Nurses Week Starts Today

National Nurses Week Starts Today

Today is the first day of National Nurses Week, held every year from May 6th to May 12th to honor the profession of nursing. Goodwin Street Medical Supply will be offering 15% discount to any nurses this week who mention this post.

The last day of Nurses Week, May 12th, is the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. She is most know for organizing the nurses tending to the wounded soldiers in the Crimean War. She would often be seen making rounds to check on soldiers during the night, and became know as  “The Lady with the Lamp”.

Nurses are the true backbone of our healthcare system. They work hard to treat the sick and injured while preventing the spread of disease. Be sure to express gratitude this week to any nurses in your life who have helped you or your loved ones get better!
