Thank You 
While everyone at Sloan Kettering contributes to making this a great hospital, it is the nurses who bring it all together for  the patients. Their professionalism, knowledge, tireless good humor,and deep empathy  never ceases to amaze me.  I have developed a deep respect for these remarkable men and women.
And it all started with a  women named Florence Nightingale. You can learn more about her below:


“I use the word nursing for want of a better. It has been limited to signify little more than the administration of medicines and the application of poultices. It ought to signify the proper use of fresh air, light, warmth, cleanliness, quiet, and the proper selection and administration of diet—all at the least expense of vital power to the patient.”
