About Us


Today we use the symbol of the lamp to mark your transition from student to one of service - lighting the way into your future.

Florence Nightingale used a lamp to light her way as she brought comfort and hope to the wounded soldiers during the Crimean War. Florence Nightingale became known as "The Lady with the lamp" and as a tribute to her dedication, the lamp icon became symbolic of nursing. The lamp shines as a symbol of the care and devotion a dedicated nurse gives to the sick and injured.

We aim to serve you with the best quality, service and price on your lamps.

A Nurse's Poem By: Marilyn Malcom

Please don't rush or pass me by, I hope you'll look into my eyes.
And see a person, a gentle soul who needs your touch to make me whole.
Please don't see the color of my skin, or judge me for I'm oh so thin.
Don't tune me out as I speak; my language may be different, my voice is weak.
My ancestry may not be like yours, but don't walk out and close all the doors.
Yes, I may be different but also the same. We both cry and we both feel pain.
If we can build a bridge and also meet, our differences we can defeat.
It would be a tiny step I know. But, I'll get better we both will grow.
Please don't rush and pass me by, I hope you'll look into my eyes.
And see the person, a gentle soul, who needs your touch to make me whole.
