Hey, Camp Fans!
A hundred or multiple hundreds of children and teens having a blast doing awesome things away from their parents out in the woods in the middle of nowhere. Summer camp is typically a rather safe environment, but definitely not immune to unfortunate illnesses or mild wounds. That’s why camps know they need to have a nurse on hand throughout their summer sessions. No strangers to dealing with tummy aches, bee stings, and all other inopportune ailments that may befall you, camp nurses are the best.
Camp Nurses always treat their patients with absolute care and empathy no matter what’s wrong with them. Summer camp nurses (and nurses in general) are so deserving of a day designated to honoring them which is why they have one—TODAY! May 6th is National Nurse Day. Happy Nurse Day!
A great day to show your appreciation toward the world of nurses, this day actually stretches out to an entire week, ending on May 12th which is the birthday of Florence Nightingale. Born back in 1820, Ms. Nightingale is considered to be the founder of modern nursing. She first saw recognition during her time spent tending to the injured soldiers in the Crimean War during the mid-19th Century between France and Russia.
Soldiers started referencing Florence as ‘The Lady with the Lamp’ as she typically made her rounds at night. That’s why her birthday is honored each year now when National Nurse Week reaches its end.
So, be sure while you’re away on your summer camp stay to thank your camp nurse for the assurance of your well-being and the ever-kind manner that nurses always have. On behalf of Everything Summer Camp, we send out a giant thank you to camp nurses, school nurses, clinical nurses, emergency room nurses, and all other kinds. You truly help the people of the world every day!
Make sure you show your appreciation of nurses that you might know in your life today—I know I’m acquainted with a few! As always, thanks for reading.
