History of National Nurses Day
May 6th is National Nurses Day. What better time to recognize these brave men and women for all they do to care for others. With the recent events they have never been asked to sacrifice more. National Nurses Day kicks off a full week of recognition which ends on May 12th which happens to be Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
Florence Nightingale was the founder of modern nursing and also a British social reformer and statistician. It was during the Crimean War that she became famous. She lead the way for managing and training hundreds of nurses. Their efforts to care for wounded soldiers was incredible and saved many lives.
It was because of this contribution that Dorothy Sutherland of the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare sent a proposal to President Dwight Eisenhower in 1953 asking that there was a proclamation for a “Nurse Day”. One year later a new bill sponsored by US Representative Frances Bolton was introduced to Congress for more consideration. Finally twenty years later in 1974 President Nixon proclaimed National Nurses Week to be observed each May. Then in 1982 National Nurses Day was officially created for May 6th by President Reagan.
Making up the highest percentage of the United States healthcare workforce there are over 3 million nurses today. These courageous people have chosen a career that puts them and their families in harms way by all of the illnesses they treat. In fact nurses often sustain more back injuries than construction workers. They also walk an average of over three miles per shift as they care for others. Talk about getting your daily steps in!
If you are lucky enough to have a nurse in your life, celebrate their contributions. Nurses are known to have high ethical standards. After all they have seen people in their most vulnerable states and know their weight and keep it a secret. While doctors are vital to saving lives, nurses make their jobs successful. They are on the front line administering shots, nursing wounds and in emotional times caring for dying patients.
The professional floral designers at Flowerama Columbus honor the front line healthcare workers and will help you celebrate a special nurse in your life. Imagine the delight of receiving a beautiful flower arrangement, green plant or gift basket as a show of appreciation!
Flowerama Columbus has three generations of family members and every single one has worked in the flower shops at one point of their lives. In fact, at least one member from each generation is currently working in the flower shops in one way or another. Now this is not always the case, because some of our youngest generation travels off to college from time to time, but they often help out if only at the holidays. Flowerama Columbus offers four great locations where you can shop. However, if you prefer online shopping, we have made a large investment in our computer system allowing you a user friendly environment to browse our products and then have them shipped any where in the country.
