KNOWLEDGE HEALTH CARING The Registered Nurse symbol is symbolic of the caring nature of nursing. The Caduceus dates back to Greek mythology. The serpent symbolizes fertility, wisdom and healing. The staff is a symbol of neutrality and noncombatant status. This is the image of choice for medicine. Today nurses are the heart and soul of the medical profession and care for the sick and ailing. They give of themselves selflessly and spend their lives caring for others. Wearing the RN Caduceus Charm Bangle will enable you to feel the love of giving.
