Florence Nightingale Commemorative Moment
The Florence Nightingale Commemorative Moment began in 2000 as a celebration of Nursing's preeminent contributor and ended up launching a worldwide movement. The Nightingale Moment takes place Friday, May 12 at noon (your local time). At that moment, every nurse around the world is encouraged to take a moment of silence or create a healing ceremony in celebration and dedication of holistic nursing. Doing so will create a wave of healing consciousness as nurses world-wide observe this moment.
Our collective goal is to reach every nurse in the world with this message. Please distribute this message by letter, phone, fax, e-mail, meetings, networks, and by word of mouth. Visit our website for suggestions on how you can celebrate the Nightingale Moment.
