Editorial--A World in Progress...
THIS YEAR WAS THE CENTENNIAL OF FLORENCE Nightingale's death and in commemoration, was designated as the International Year of the Nurse (IYNurse) by The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau in the U.S., The Nightingale Initiative for Global Health in Canada, and the Florence Nightingale Museum in England. 2010 IYNurse is "a collaborative, grassroots global initiative honoring nurses' voices, values, and wisdom—to act as catalysts for achieving a healthy world." In this "celebration of commitment," we honor Florence Nightingale as the founder of modern nursing and for the legacy she left us and we recognize the contributions of nurses today, all over the world. At the 2010 IYNurse website, you can read stories contributed by nurses that illustrate progress made in each of the eight UN Millennium Development Goals. Another section of the website contains tributes to nurses and to the nursing experience. A video of the Commemorative Global Service Celebrating Nursing that took place this past April at the Washington National Cathedral is also available for viewing. I hope you will visit this website and possibly make a contribution to nursing's story.
