Dear Florence,

With your passion for using data to advance the care of patients and of the nursing profession as a whole, I think you would like this uplifting sign from a hospital in Dearborn, Michigan (source: reddit). This team’s encouragement and resiliency is heartening in such uncertain times.

I think you would be proud.

Until next time,

Dear Florence is an online space to spark conversation on the role of nurses in global health. Named for the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, it seeks to advocate for nurses as leaders in the international health sector and encourage discussion on how the global health world can better leverage nurses’ unique connections to the communities they serve.

Dear Florence is written by Susan Michaels-Strasser, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, senior director of human resources for health (HRH) at ICAP, and is a special initiative to commemorate the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.

Learn more about our work with, and for, nurses on our campaign page, #ThisNurseCan.
