“Nursing is a calling, a way of life. Nursing is a service profession that cannot be lived in isolation. Nurses rely on each other for the synergistic effort of teamwork in our efforts of care giving. It is appropriate that we honor our colleagues not only during their career, but also at the end of life’s journey.”
The Nightingale Tribute is a tribute to any registered nurse or licensed practical nurse for their years of service, to be given during the nurse’s funeral by a nurse colleague or friend.
The Connecticut Nurses Foundation is proud to facilitate the Nightingale Tribute, to assist nurses in the state of Connecticut in honoring their colleagues and friends in their final moments. If you know of a friend, colleague, or family member who deserves to be recognized and honored for their commitment to nursing, please find the tribute below. Contact the Connecticut Nurses Foundation with any questions or concerns.
