The Mission of The Nightingale Tribute Nurses Society Honor Guard, Inc. is to assure that no nurse is laid to rest without proper recognition from their profession, for which they served with selflessness, dignity and love.
The Nightingale Tribute was designed and developed by the Kansas State Nurses Association in 2003.
The Nightingale Tribute Nurses Society Honor Guard, Inc. was formed by Linda F. Hill LPN in Naples, Florida on August 17th, 2010 in Loving Memory of Constance ‘Connie’ O’Connor L.P.N. whose passing inspired the creation of the recognition services.
On May 10, 2011, we became a Not-For-Profit Corporation under the name of “The Nightingale Tribute Nurses Society Honor Guard, Inc.”
- Develop and maintain a set standard of delivery at the services.
- Inform nurses locally and throughout the US about our tribute services.
- Support families and friends at the services, as needed.
