Nightingale & Rathbone: Contributions to Public Health

This half-day study workshop, coordinated by the RCN and Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI), is open to all and of particular interest to historians of nursing, MA and PhD researchers and public health nurses.

Taking an historical perspective, the workshop will highlight the contributions made by Florence Nightingale and William Rathbone to public health. Six speakers will join us, including experts from the QNI, Florence Nightingale Museum and Public Health England. We will also have the pleasure of welcoming a descendant of Rathbone himself. The final talk will reflect on Florence Nightingale’s legacy and look forward to what the future holds for public health.

The afternoon will also be a chance to learn more about the Florence Nightingale Collection in the RCN Library & Archives and the role of the RCN in the Digitisation Project.
