You can be a part of our #Nightingale2020 celebrations! 

As part of the Museum’s bicentenary events programme, commemorating 200 years of Florence Nightingale, we are putting together a film to celebrate her legacy and the inspirational stories of nurses who have followed in her footsteps. Capturing the experiences of nurses working in 2020, ‘The International Year of the Nurse and Midwife’, we want to shine a light on the importance of the profession and the vital work that is carried out every dayaround the world. 

But we can’t do this without your help!  

If you are (or have been/ are training to become) nurse we would love to hear your story. We have a few questions that we would like you to respond to, looking at your experience of nursing. You can create and send us video response, or an audio or written response if you’d prefer.

How to submit a response 

The link below will take you to a Google form* with all the information you need. Please click on the link below and complete the following:

  • Fill out your contact details
  • Create and upload your video response, answering the questions provided. If you would rather submit an audio or written response, this can also be completed here.

We would love for the film to reflect the diversity of the nursing profession and so we actively encourage submissions from nurses of all backgrounds and levels of experience. 

The finished film will become part of our digital exhibition “Nightingale in 200 Objects, People and Places” and will be shared on the Florence Nightingale Museum’s social media platforms.
