She retired when she was 67 but couldn't help but come back to her work only 6 months later.
Florence Rigney is right now the oldest nurse in duty in the USA. Although she always wanted to be a nurse, her parents didn't like that and tried to dissuade her. That really didn't work out, as she's been actually working as a nurse for 70 years!
The hospital where she is working at threw a surprise party for Florence when she turned 90. Someone from the hospital recorded the moment, uploaded it on Facebook, and it started to go viral. She was very excited about people from all around the world that congratulated her and showed their respect for her.
She's currently working at Tacoma General Hospital in Washington. When she asked the director of the hospital if she could get back to work after she retired, she didn't negate the opportunity for her.
Paula Swanson said to the old woman "Why wouldn't you?", and now Rigney works at least twice a week in an 8-hours shift at the hospital.
Her story is really inspiring, she is really dedicated to her vocation, as she stated to People Magazine that she doesn't like to just sit and do nothing all the day, she has to keep herself busy.
