Today is Florence Nightingale’s birthday and the last day of Nurses Week (May 6 – 12). Held each year, this is a time devoted to celebrating these hardworking heroes of the hospital. LIFE magazine dedicated column inches to the week with a cover story on Nursing in the 1930s. The profession has changed over the years, but a commitment to serve and a caring disposition have remained constant.
This year we wanted to do something to recognize our nurses so I put together a basket of healthy Kind treats. There is no way we can repay the work they do but we can at least offer some sustenance for their KIND-ness.
