Nestor participates in a webinar about Florence Nightingale on May 12, International Nurses’ Day
Our colleague Néstor participated in a webinar on Florence Nightingale on 12th May, the International Nurses Day. The Fundación Index organised it and its aim was to uncover lesser-known aspects of the British nurse and the transfer of her actions and thinking to the current social scenarios, such as the coronavirus pandemic, the role of nurses today and in the future, and their social recognition. Previously, the four participants (Sonia Herrera, Elena Santainés, Manuel Amezcua and Néstor Serrano) uploaded their presentations to YouTube and the Fundación Index website. Subsequently, the meeting was held, a very dynamic and relevant colloquium, accompanied by the presence and reflections of people belonging to different parts of the world.
Néstor: “If we look at things with perspective, our profession has come a long way since Nightingale’s time, I am sure she would be very proud. However, it is still not enough; a large part of society does not know what we do. Let’s continue working together in one direction; nurses have a lot to show always accompanied by knowledge and our love for caring for and improving people’s health”.Below are the videos of his presentation and the colloquium of all the participants.
