2020: INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF THE NURSE AND MIDWIFE
When the World Health Organization designated 2020 as the “International Year of the Nurse and Midwife,” it was welcomed within the nursing profession with open arms and hearts. Now, more than ever, nurses deserve the recognition this designation brings with it. While the battle continues, the UF College of Nursing wants Gator Nurses to know that we are here for you. We support you. We thank you for your sacrifices.
