91-Year-Old is Oldest Working Nurse in the Country – The Good News [VIDEO]
She says it gives her something to "get up for" in the morning.
Florence "See See" Rigney gets up twice a week and, coffee in hand, drives herself to Tacoma General Hospital in Washington (just south of Seattle) two days a week. She's 91-years-old, so you may think she's going in for some kind of treatment. Nope - she's going to work.
She's worked as an operating room nurse there for the last 70 years. She preps the room for surgery and helps patients prepare as well. She retired at 67, for six months...and then she got bored.
Her 92nd birthday is coming up in May, and even though she's toned down her schedule a bit, she says she still feels "blessed" that they allow her to work.
