It is the eve of our special day
Can we honor nurses’ caring in a new found way?
Can we as a profession unite?
Centering and shining our healing light.
It’s our own day emerging from here, nurses’ day eve
Supporting one another, let’s believe:
That all nurses can earn a superior pay
That love and caring will rule the day
That hope and healing reign supreme
That we soon shall realize Nightingale’s dream
That we shine the light in any places remaining dark
That each nurse may leave her or his healing mark
That nursing education moves fully toward caring science
That we remain cohesive and united, growing our reliance
Yes, the field of nursing is moving out of oppression
Journeying forward to our own art, science, and caring expression.
With great thanks to the many nurses actively striving to create transformative change, innovations, and holistic-caring practices; keep striving, keep healing, and share your love and light!
