International Nurses Day...

It was International Nurses Day on the ship yesterday (12th May). Of course, being a hospital ship, we rely heavily on medical personnel, and none more-so than the many wonderful nurses who serve here. This is Liz, one of those wonderful nurses.

I am so very thankful to have the honour of knowing so many amazing nurses who see their work as a special call from God. They truly make a lasting impact in the lives of the patients on the hospital deck - and the general crew on other decks too! Thank you Nurses for all you do!

If you're interested, International Nurses Day commemorates the birth of Florence Nightingale, the forerunner of modern nursing. For more, click here.

(I was going to post this on the day itself, but unfortunately issues with Blogger meant that I was unable to - as well as meaning that the post I wrote about the Academy Creative Arts fair has temporarily disappeared. Oh well. Hopefully it will turn up soon.)
