Nurturing Nurses

We are learning about three significant nurses that changed the way nurses and hospitals worked for the better.

We are learning about Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell.

We had a Florence Nightingale workshop.

We learned about how people applied for jobs in Scutari. We made candle holders, sashes for nurses, lockets to remember our loved ones and wrote cards for injured soldiers.

In the afternoon we had to role-play all the different jobs at Scutari Hospital. These included, nurses tended to wounded soldiers, cooks, cleaners, laundry and gardeners.
