Florence Nightingale once likened nurses’ work to the finest art created by painters and sculptors. Nursing isn’t just a profession but an artistic pursuit that requires profound devotion and preparation.
While artists work with lifeless materials like canvas or marble, nurses care for the human body’s physical, emotional and spiritual well-being — the temple of God’s spirit. Nightingale, the most pioneering and influential nurse in history, believed the exclusive devotion and deep understanding of the complexities of the human body and spirit elevated the nursing profession to the status of an art form.
And here at Luther Manor, we couldn’t agree more. The meaningful difference nurses and certified nursing assistants (CNAs) make in the lives of our residents is nothing short of a masterpiece. They provide compassionate and unparalleled health care services, promote wellness and make a meaningful difference in the lives of older adults.
May and June are months to honor the nursing profession and encourage understanding and appreciation of their invaluable contributions. May was National Nurses Month, with May 6 designated National Nurses Day. May 12 marked Florence Nightingale’s birthday and International Nurses Day. Certified Nursing Assistants Week runs June 15-21, with CNA Day celebrated June 17.
