Our Nightingale Lamp pin is very special and is named for the legendary nurse Florence Nightingale the "Lady of the Lamp" and uses the lamp of knowledge as the symbol of nursing education. Ms. Nightingale was a founding pioneer of the concept of teaching nursing as a profession and founded a nursing school and medical college for woman about 150 years ago. The symbol of the Lamp of Knowledge also comes from the Greek stories of the search for scientific knowledge. The pin is gold plated with a small red flame. The pin has a tac backing and comes one to a card.
This is meaningful gift for fellow students or family to give on graduation day. Many instructors and schools give these nursing lamp pins during there pinning ceremony or as a special gift from the teacher.
