May 6 Happy Nurses Day -- Give Away #1

Happy #NursesDay! May 6 is designated as Nurses Day in the U.S. to celebrate the nursing profession and to raise awareness of the important role nurses play in society around the world. Nurses Week runs through May 12 each year which is the birthday of Florence Nightingale ( May 12, 1820).

One of components of a Nurses Day celebration is reciting or reading for The Nightingale Pledge which is also known as the Nurse's Oath:
I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug. I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession, and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.

To begin the Celebration of Nurses Week, here's a Free Book for EVERYONE from Lorie A. Brown  RN MN JD:
