Years back a newly employed nurse will be placed on Grade level 3! Until when our Heroin came NURSE VICTORIA GOWON, she woke her husband around 12:45am on the 6th of June 1974, she knelt down besides bed asked her husband to proclaim a decree that will move nursing from where it was then to where it is today! The president(her man) asked her what exactly she needed and why it was necessary. Vic stood up, sat besides him and gave her husband the most sweetest and ever romantic kissing! "Thank you my Honey, I just want nursing to move from this ridiculous level G3 to something higher like G7, you know dear, Nurses will be with the patients 24hours, running the 3 shifts yet not well compensated". Her husband said ah! That was serious not like this in canada and other places. He promised her wife to implement her suggestion immediately,since that day nursing received her independence! Finally she hugged her man kissed him again and said sweetheart,Nurses in Nigeria will never forget her!

What role/roles have you played in your little way to improve the image of nursing profession?

What Veronica Gowon did 42 years ago during her own generation is what our generation is now enjoying.

What will the generation to come have to benefit from what our generation presently is doing?

Think twice, you too can make a name which will be in record for life.
