Event description
[POSTPONED] An Evening with Florence Nightingale

About this Event

DUE TO THE CURRENT GLOBAL STATUS OF COVID-19, ALL NIGHTINGALE 2020 BICENTENNIAL EVENTS, INCLUDING THE MAY 1 ALL-DAY SYMPOSIUM, HAVE BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding.

The evening, based on Kathy Duckett and playwright Paul Langford's “Florence Nightingale: A Medical Revolutionary”, is told in a series of flashbacks as related by Florence as an old woman (of 41) to her nurse. In these flashbacks, we see her as a young girl first becoming a nurse, in the Crimea and upon her return to England. Through these events, the audience sees how she became one of the most powerful women of her time and how she changed the course of medicine for the 19th and 20th centuries. The impact of her work is still felt today, although many people are no longer aware of all she has done.

Doors open at 5pm, with opening remarks beginning at 5:30pm. The show will run from 5:45pm-7pm, followed by a reception until 8:30pm.

In conjunction with the Annual Nursing Meeting, there will be a symposium about Florence Nightingale’s influence on the evolution of nursing, both historical and contemporary, on May 1, 2020 from 9am-8pm. This conference will feature keynote speakers Dr. Jacqueline Fawcett, Dr. Mary Ellen Doona and David Green, Director of The Florence Nightingale Museum, London as well as 4 paper presentations.
