Florence Rigney 94th birthday, helps patients prep for surgery.
America’s oldest working nurse, who works at Tacoma General, turned 94 Wednesday.
Florence “SeeSee” Rigney graduated from the Tacoma General School of Nursing in 1946 and has been working at the hospital ever since.
Rigney sets up operating rooms and helps patients prep for surgery.
She says she once tried to retire when she was 67 years old, but that only lasted six months.
The hospital honored her Wednesday with a special celebration.
Happy 94th Birthday, Nurse SeeSee!
