The Thinking Nurse – Florence Nightingale and Nursing Education - The Nightingale Fund was launched in 1855, a national appeal in gratitude for Florence Nightingale’s work in Turkey during the Crimean War. £44,039 was raised – the equivalent of £2-£3 million today. Plans were drawn up to establish a training school for nurses and a rather reluctant Florence agreed to spend the money on the education of nurses, even though her plans for nurse training were not yet fully formulated. The Nightingale Training School opened at St Thomas’s Hospital in 1860, soon after its relocation from St Thomas’s Street to make way for the expansion of London Bridge railway station. Florence was involved in the wrangling over the hospital’s new site, as she strongly believed that it should move to the healthier suburbs and not to the banks of the filthy effluvium that was the River Thames. Florence has been represented as having little involvement with the Training School. She was indeed distracted from a serious interest in the School during its early years when she was largely absorbed by other work on the army, health in general and India in particular, although she did write instructions for accommodation, lecture attendance, rules and discipline. These photographs and ward diaries illustrate her direct links and connection to the School from the 1870s. Temporary exhibition at the Florence Nightingale Museum.
