Hidden Lives, Untold Stories: Nurses Beyond Nightingale (online event)

Join us to hear the stories of some of the 27 nurses added to the Dictionary of National Biography for the 2020 Year of the Nurse.


Two hundred years after Florence Nightingale’s birth, most people recognize only a small number of nurses in history. Yet nurses have made huge contributions to healthcare history, from nursing in wartime, to mental health, and workhouses; while their roles include publishing, nursing professors, chief nursing officers, and local community district nursing. Today, the vital role of nurses in the COVID-19 Pandemic is widely acknowledged, yet individuals are rarely recognised.

Join us to hear from a group of nurses and historians who wrote the 27 new entries for the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, published this year. From Annie Altschul, pioneer of mental health nursing, to Lisbeth Hockey, the first ever professor of nursing, find out how these nurses inspired and influenced the authors.
