National Nurses Week is coming up on May 6th and runs through to May 12th. This special week is a testament to a wonderful woman who knew from a very young age that she wanted to play a vital role in the healing of people. Her name was Florence Nightingale and she is often called the mother of modern nursing. If you’ve ever been sick or had to depend on a nurse to care for you or a loved one, you would understand the deep connection made with nurses sometimes. The nurse represents so much, especially if our situation is dyer. He or she is a representation of hope, love and humility – so many diverse feelings. The patient will always remember the care and tenderness offered and the face of a nurse easily becomes like the face of an angel. It could be their knowledge or sometimes just their smile. Their smile alone can light up the room and the life of a patient and even family members or friends. The radiance of a nurse is immeasurable.
Florence Nightingale helped to change the face of nursing and bring it to the standards it is today. She began caring for sick people in villages near her family home. Although she was born to an affluent British family, it didn’t hinder her from wanting to be among people from all walks of life to bring healing and recovery to them.
Florence Nightingale was the inspiration behind National Nurses Week which actually ends on May 12th – Florence’s birthday. These are established dates in recognition of her role in how Nursing has evolved over many decades. Additionally, as of 1998, May 8 was designated as National Student Nurses Day, to be celebrated annually.
The beauty of a nurse’s soul shows in the comfort of their patients. Nurses Week is a great time to honor the inner and outer beauty of a nurse by giving loads of pampering and relaxation – helping their beauty show with hydrated, nourished and glowing skin.
Serve The Goddess can bring some facials and manicures or pedicures to your apron of nurses to show how much they are appreciated. Their long hours, dedication to saving lives and bringing joy to people go beyond the knowledge they may have to heal a wound.
Give them the chance to feel as beautiful on the outside as their patients see them on the inside. Call us to see how we can book a few hours to bring pampering, care and rejuvenation to some of the most caring people on the planet.
