“We make a difference. Helping people take first steps after losing the ability to walk or being the first person somebody sees returning from unconsciousness. Such intimate moments experienced and shared. I recognise the value of my job and so do my patients. That is what really counts.” On Florence Nightingale’s birthday we celebrate International Nurses Day – a time to celebrate the incredibly important role of nurses play in our society and National Health Service. To our Nursing students, staff, mentors and lecturers, as well as every single nurse out there, we want to say a huge thank you for everything you do!
