Celebrating Nurses Everyday

Celebrating Nurses EverydayThe International Nurse Coach Association honors all nurses for their contributions, creativity, and innovations as leaders in transforming health care in today’s changing environment. During Nurses Week, May 6-12, 2014, we celebrate our nursing legacy with Florence Nightingale:

“No amount of medical knowledge will lessen the accountability for nurses to do what nurses do, that is, manage the environment to promote positive life processes.”
-Florence Nightingale, Notes on Nursing, 1860.
