我見 我聞 我思
尤其是在過去一年多來，世界新冠病毒之侵襲， 護士們守在病疫之最前缐 ，多半都成為了盡忠職守的戰士。
早在一九五三年時在美國衛福部服務的蘇德蘭女士向艾森豪總統寫信，建議總統頒佈國立之謢士日，經白宮同意後 ，自一九五四年開始 ，全國民眾每年都展開一周的慶祝活動。
近年來 ，全世界各地都出現了護理人員短缺之現象， 尤其是在美國， 許多學生都不願讀護理系，所以近年來大批來自亞洲尤其是菲律賓護士到了美國任職， 但是仍然無法解決問題。
We Are Celebrating National Nurses Day
Today is National Nurses Day. On this day we all raise awareness of the contributions of all nurses and the vital role nurses play in our society.
National Nurses Week begins on May 6th and ends on May 12th, which also is the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was was the founder of modern nursing. She became well-known while taking care of the wounded soldiers during the Crimean War. She is called, “The Lady With The Lamp.”
Today, especially in our pandemic period, we need to recognize nurses everywhere and celebrate their commitment and dedication to their patients. Tell everyone about the service we have received from the nurses. When we visit a hospital or a clinic, again we need to say a special thanks again to all the nurses.
In 1953, Dorothy Sutherland, an employee of the United States Department of Health, sent a letter to President Dwight D. Eisenhower proposing a National Nurses Day. In 1974, President Richard Nixon proclaimed a National Nurses Week.
Today the world is experiencing a shortage of nurses, including us here in America. In recent years, many Asian nurses came to America especially from The Philippines. Their hard work really helped us solve the shortage problem.
I am planning to suggest the opening of a nursing school in West Africa close to Guinea. In the future we need to train more young people in nursing. When they have finished their studies, they can help the nursing shortage around the world.
