Happy International Nurses Day: Salute to all the health workers

By JOSPHAT NJOROGE | May 12th 2020

May 12, every year, Nurses celebrates the founder of modern nursing "A Lady with a Lamp" called Florence Nightingale. This year marks 200 years of her birthday.

Nurses celebrate this wonderful and memorable day amidst a scaring COVID-19 pandemic, which is comparable to the Crimean war, which Florence Nightingale tirelessly volunteered to dress the wounded soldiers.

She emphasized the need for environmental hygiene in her famous Environmental theory. This element is now being utilized in handling COVID-19 patients and also reducing the risk of transmission.

This year nurses are being recognized as front line workers as they spend sleepless nights coupled with anxiety to fight this pandemic.

Nurses will live to be blessed for their great work of providing the needed support to patients. Happy International Nurses Week.
