Early in 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared 2020 as the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife to mark the bicentenary of the birth of the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale and to recognize the critical contribution both professions make to global health.
If you’ve experienced the power of a great nurse, you won’t forget it. The wisdom, the skill and the dedication that nurses show every day, sets them apart as very special people. Through our Honor A Nurse campaign, you can say a heartfelt thank you to an individual nurse, while at the same time enable nurses to help more people, every day.
Whether you want to thank a special caregiver, or celebrate a nursing colleague, a friend, or a family member, contribute in their name today. Your donation to the general nursing scholarship fund will support the educational aspirations of future nurses. Every nurse you honor will receive a special certificate from UT Tyler.
