Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

National Nurses Day

05-06 National Nurses DayAppropriately designated on the birthday of Florence Nightingale, National Nurses Day celebrates the tireless efforts of the men and women who administer to the sick and injured, bringing them back to health, or keeping them comfortable if recovery is too far away. Here in Gotham, the holiday could just as easily have been designated on the birthday of Lillian Wald, founder of the Visiting Nurse Service of New York, the largest not-for-profit home and community-based health care service in the U.S.
