Innovation at Cleveland Clinic Celebrates National Nurses Week
Florence Nightingale, OM, RRC, DStJ was an English social reformer, statistician, and the founder of modern nursing. Nightingale came to prominence while serving as a manager and trainer of nurses during the Crimean War, in which she organized care for wounded soldiers at Constantinople. Leaving quite the mark on the profession, Nightingale’s birthday is used to mark the end of a period of recognition for nurses nationwide – National Nurses Week. National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, and is used to raise awareness of all nurse contributions and commitments, as well as the vital role they play in society.
