The nursing role in the monitoring and measurement of blood pressure is shown on the 60 cent stamp from British Virgin Islands issued in 1983 as part of a four stamp set marking Nursing Week. The 10 cent stamp in this set features Florence Nightingale and the 75 cent stamp Peebles Hospital. The United Nations issue stamps for use on mail posted at their New York, Geneva, and Vienna headquarters. Whereas the stamps from each site share a common theme the designs are frequently very different. Six stamps (two from each site) were issued in 1988 for the International Volunteer Day. The stamps from the UN Headquarters in New York and Geneva featured teaching in various areas including fruit growing and animal husbandry. One of the Vienna HQ stamps carried a health theme showing nursing services and blood pressure measurement.
