And in peacetime, and during the war, Mrs. Nightingale showed high example of mercy, compassion, kindness. Her dedication to the rescue of wounded compatriots during the Crimean War was appreciated by Queen Victoria, who presented her a diamond brooch with the inscription "Blessed is Merciful." On the initiative of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine and the Association of Nurses, starting from 1997, the World Nursing Day is celebrated in Ukraine on May 12.

Such an important work was valued by the international community.

Institute of Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology under the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine” charity program «Walking to the Healh Land» brought the bright and joyful moments in the nurses’s souls of the IPOG NAMS.
