Celebrating the International Year of the Nurse
“The 2010 International Year of the Nurse (IYNurse) is the centennial year of the death of the founder of modern nursing — Florence Nightingale (1820-1910). To celebrate this historic milestone, the 2010 IYNurse was established to actively involve the world’s nurses — estimated to be more than 15 million — in a celebration of commitment to bring health to their communities, locally and worldwide” (www.2010iynurse.net/)
As part of the 2010 International Year of the Nurse, a Commemorative Global Service Celebrating Nursing will take place at Washington National Cathedral.
Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), the Nightingale Initiative for Global Health (NIGH), and the Florence Nightingale Museum invite you to participate in this celebration. This free event is open to the public.
