“Today – explained the president of the Order of Trentino Daniel Pedrotti – represents a moment to recognize the value of our profession in the healthcare system. “We feed health” (That was the name of the meeting held on May 13, ed.) no it’s just a slogan, but more: every day, through science and relationships, as our founder Florence Nightingale taught us, nurses truly nurture the health of citizens. This means providing 360-degree care to a person not only from a physical point of view, but also from an emotional, psychological and social point of view. This means promoting healthy lifestyles, educating patients and their families, supporting people on their healing journey and protecting their rights. A nurse does this in her daily activities. Being a nurse means devoting yourself to a noble and precious yet complex profession that requires compassion, dedication, and ever-increasing skills. “Every day we face great challenges and responsibilities, we take care of fragile and vulnerable people in the tender moments of their lives.”
