  • I am honoured as I have been invited to the Florence Nightingale Foundation's Student Day in London and will also be attending the Comemorative service in Westminster Abbey. I will be very proud to be a final year nursing student tomorrow! :)

  • Greetings from New Zealand.
    My nursing colleagues and I in Radiology are celebrating International Nurses Day by having shared morning tea in our nurses area within the Radiology Department at Auckland City Hospital.
    The latest edition of the New Zealand Nurses Review (journal) has a great article about Florenece Nightingale and her contributions to nursing and her continuing relevance today.
    Happy Nurses Day to all of you, wherever you are.

    Gillian Martin CNS Radiology.

    Nurses are true angels, they are over worked, under paid and by far under appreciated, i am not a nurse but have needed them within in my life for myself, family and loved ones, i thank you all for doing a great job taking care of us all no matter who or what we are xxx
