To the nurse who just graduated and is in their first year of nursing at such a time as this.

To the nurse who is thinking of resignation.
To the nurse who has been made to feel like their life and input to work doesn't matter.

Everyday, we see you write names and dates on your face masks. We see how kindhearted you are and it shows in your work and your eyes.

Everyday you show up stronger, more capable and braver than the day before, not just for your patients, but for one another's need at work.

To all the nurses all around the world...

We Feel you.
We share your pain.
We have your back.
We show up for you.
We are praying for you.
You are us and we are you.
We are each other's keeper.

Never again will you be referred to as "Just a Nurse" because you are much more than that.

This is the year of the nurse and we love you.

Special dedication to our nurses and not forgetting every worker risking his or her life to help us stay alive. We love you and we are praying for strength and grace to fight through and come out stronger than we were.


God bless u.

Nursing is the best that can happen to you.
Always appreciate the genuine nurses whenever you see them or have any encounter with them.
Always approach us with respect, don't look down on us and expect us to treat you like kings.
We sacrifice our lives to sustain yours.

We skip meals to ensure you have your meals.
We are not mean, we are not witches.
Always come to the hospital environment with a positive attitude rather than biased mindset.

Save our health care institutions
Save our health care workers.
10% of the death globally affected health workers.
Provide PPEs in our hospitals
Equip our hospitals
Nigerian Nurses lighting up the world one candle at a time.
