    The Florence Nightingale Project

    To mark and commemorate the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth on 12th May 2020, we are delighted to launch a new appeal to raise money to cover the NMC registration fees of 200 newly qualified midwives and nurses.

    Florence Nightingale, referred to as “The Lady with the Lamp” changed the perception of nurses during a time where wealthy women were expected to find a good husband and raise a family. Florence Nightingale led a team of nurses in a women’s hospital and created a new respect for women and nurses.

    We believe that during the current pandemic, the perception of our nurses has changed again. We have found a new respect for the NHS and are showing our appreciation by Clapping for the NHS on Thursday nights. We wanted to take this a step further and ease the burden of the registration fees for newly qualified nurses and midwives to show our appreciation.

    Florence Nightingale educated America’s first trained nurse, Linda Richards, and that is why we have focussed our fund raising to nurses and midwives who are still in education or due to complete their learning shortly”.

    The current cost for registration fees for a student midwife or nurse is £120 (The Nursing and Midwifery Council). Our initial aim is to support and fund 200 newly qualified nurses and midwives. In a time where their skills are so desperately needed, we want to support them as much as we can. So we are hoping to raise £24,000 to succeed in our campaign. Every penny counts.
