OA Florence Nightingale Charity NHS T-shirt
2020 is the ‘Year Of The Nurse’ and also commemorates 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale on the 12 of May. The “Lady with the Lamp” became the founder of modern nursing and the first woman to receive the Order of Merit - hence why we have chosen her as our emblem for our charity t-shirts.
“Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit?”
Florence Nightingale 1820 - 1910
