Year of the Nurse and Midwife Short Film

We are delighted to share Year of the Nurse 2020, a short film that sheds light on the experiences of nurses today. To mark the 200th Anniversary of Florence Nightingale, we reached out to nurses across the world and asked them to share their stories. What is Nightingale’s legacy and how is this reflected in modern nursing? What changes would they like to see? We have been inspired by these moving stories, and have truly seen how vital and wide-reaching the work of nurses is, in times of adversity and disruption but also the everyday.

The Florence Nightingale Museum would like to thank everyone who made a contribution towards ‘Year of the Nurse 2020’. Thank you to all of the nurses who submitted responses, members of the public who kindly gave us their views, TechPathways London for their Digital Skills training, and our Nightingale 2020 Film Project Volunteers for turning the concept for the film into a reality.

We would also like to say a big thank you to the National Heritage Lottery Fund and National Lottery Players for making the Nightingale 2020 Project possible.

Year of the Nurse 2020 was produced by Holly Henry, Jess Judge, Hayley Salter, Robyn Minshall, Jess Moncur, Noor Bashir, Natalie Evans, Dan Ventura and Sam Morris.
