Nurses’ Day Eve


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!
