We learned a lot from 2020. All of us have endured struggles, heartache, and pain. If there was a shining light through all the chaos, it had to be the amazing nurses around the globe. Historically, members of this profession have been taken for granted. But, when the pressure mounted, these individuals demonstrated their commitment and courage. Their unwavering dedication and care helped all of us get through a difficult pandemic.
Singapore celebrates Nurses Day on August 1st. Back in the 1800’s Singapore realized there were several hospitals but a lack of nurses to support the doctors. French nuns were trained to fill the need. United Kingdom— A special service is held at St. Margaret’s Church at East Wellow in Hampshire, where Florence Nightingale is buried.
