Fierce Protectress

coin of the month

This is the 1st coin in the compassion series of the Nurse Commemorative Coin Series. This coin honors the Nurse Attributes of Compassion, Hope and Peace.

The other night, I had a vision,
We were soaring over ice and snow,
I looked down, I saw us flying,
On the wings of a Nightingale.

We call upon you
In the name of Caring
With Hope of Peace for All, Sharing
Hold up the lamp and be counted
As we soar with the Nightingale.”

~Lyrics from Return of the Nightingale written by Jill Schumacher, BSN, MS, DNM.

“Thank you so much for the Florence coin. I have always tried to live up to what I felt her passion to care for the sick must have been! Thank You – two words that do mean a lot – but somehow seem inadequate for how I feel about your gift and card. All the people I have showed it to have been just as amazed as I was/am. I guess for the amazement issue on my part…I was just doing what I thought/think nursing care should be for EVERYONE!”


Lincoln City, Oregon

My son presented [his nurse] with the Florence Nightingale Coin three weeks after his accident. She was overcome with emotion and said that we couldn’t begin to comprehend how much it meant to her to receive something so precious as a coin representing her idol, Florence Nightingale. She said she first remembered hearing a story about Florence Nightingale when she was 5 years old and that was when she decided to be a nurse and help people like Florence did. She was so thrilled with receiving the coin and that was what I wanted to achieve. Thank you so much for taking time to understand what it means to be a nurse and to be a healer and finding a way to honor those of the nursing and healing profession in a meaningful way!”
