TACOMA, Washington — If you live to be 90 years old, where would you want to celebrate your special day?

For Florence “SeeSee” Rigney the answer was simple — at work!

The operating room nurse at Tacoma General Hospital was surprised by her coworkers on her 90th birthday.

She’s been a nurse for nearly seven decades and has no plans of slowing down.

The CEO of the hospital called Rigney the oldest working nurse.

According to the Huffington Post, Rigney no longer works directly with patients. Instead, she works two days a week setting up the operating rooms.

The woman who posted the above video to YouTube called Rigney an “inspiration to all!”

“God bless you my friend,” she wrote in the video description. “We love you and can only hope to have half of the energy you have at your age.”
