International Nurses Day

“Remember: nurses are like icebergs. At any one time, you are only seeing what they are actually doing.” ~Ian Miller

12th May is Florence Nightingale’s birth anniversary and is observed as International Nurses Day. Florence Nightingale was an English nurse, a social reformer and a statistician who founded the key pillars of modern nursing. She was born on this day in 1820. International Nurses Day assumes great significance in times such as these when we are battling the COVID-19 pandemic. Nurses are the backbone of any hospital or clinic continuously providing high-quality care often working without a break and the COVID-19 pandemic is a stark reminder of the vital role nurses play. 
The little ones of Nursery and Kindergarten showed their admiration to the nurses by making Thank You cards for the school nurse and by re- creating a little nurse using paper.
