Kickass Woman Of The Day: The Oldest Working Nurse In The US Just Turned 90!
Florence “SeeSee” Rigney, a registered nurse at a Tacoma, Washington hospital, turned 90-years-old on Friday. She’s taken care of patients at the same hospital for the past 69 years, and is now the oldest working nurse in the United States. In this video, Rigney tries to hold back tears as her coworkers celebrate and she receives a letter from Washington’s governor. Rigney has wanted to be a nurse since she was young. These days, she works two days a week, and instead of working directly with patients, she sets up operating rooms with equipment. She seems to have twice the energy of her younger coworkers! What an inspiration. Happy birthday, SeeSee!
