The oldest working nurse in the United States turns 90 and celebrates 60 years of nursing


Florence "SeeSee" Rigney is an operating room nurse in Tacoma, WA. She celebrated her 90th birthday last year with coworkers, who honored her 60+ years of nursing. 

SeSee hasn't changed stations since 1946, when she began her career.

"She always knew she wanted to be a nurse," explained Sheri Morris, assistant nurse manager, in a TODAY.com interview. "Over the past almost-century, she ended up in a few different places in the U.S., and at times drifted away from Tacoma General Hospital to spend time with her husband or kids for a year or two, but she always came back here."

Maybe 90 is the new 60?
