International Nurses Day

Today is International Nurses Day and this one is particularity special. Below is from our Director of Community Life, Marian Heemskerk.

“We are very proud of our nursing staff who demonstrate dedication and resilience in the work they do for older adults, especially during these very perplexing times of COVID-19. We are blessed and proud to have each and everyone of them working with us at Elim”.

Many of us have heard of the “lady with the lamp”, Florence Nightingale, who was born on May 12,1820, the same day on which we now celebrate International Women’s Day. She was a leader who was recognized for her modern way of nursing and I think of our nurses as our “Bright Lights” as they work through unpredicted times in health care. Nurses truly are heroes making a difference in all they do. “
