Florence Nightingale says thanks to nurses on International Nurses' Day

  • Comment

Nurses at Aintree hospitals marked International Nurses’ Day on Tuesday 12th May by receiving a ‘thank you’ card from the most famous nurse of all – Florence Nightingale.

‘Florence’, accompanied by volunteers in Crimean War nurse uniforms visited wards at Liverpool’s University Hospital Aintree.

Playing the part of Florence was Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust volunteer Ruth Sturgeon.

The theme for this year’s Nurses’ Day was ‘Delivering Quality, Serving Communities: Nurses Leading Care Innovations.’

Jill Byrne, the trust’s director of Nursing said: “The NHS is proud of the way in which nursing has grown as a profession and how today’s nurses are encouraged to expand their skills and further their training throughout their careers.’
