In Florence Nightingale’s Footsteps


May 12 is the 200th Anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. ⁣

This special webinar will explore Florence Nightingale’s relevance as our modern world is facing an unprecedented pandemic. COVID-19 has spread to over 190 countries and territories, prompting governments to essentially cause a global standstill. Healthcare workers are at the frontline, working night and day to treat those infected while scientists are working around the clock to produce a vaccine.⁣

The World Health Organisation (WHO) Executive Board designated 2020 the “Year of the Nurse and the Midwife” in honour of the 200th birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale (1820-1910).⁣

Modern nursing finds a proud heritage in its founder, Florence Nightingale, a mystic, visionary, reformer, healer, environmentalist, feminist, practitioner, scientist and politician. Her contribution to nursing theory, research, statistics, public health, and health care reform are foundational and inspirational; and her spiritual example prompts us in our own healing journey.⁣

In this webinar we will explore with you the integrative, holistic and integral paradigm that Nightingale introduced in the 1860s and how it applies to the COVID-19 pandemic and reflects the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) towards healthy people living on a healthy planet. This has implications for all of us at a personal and collective level, especially as we live through this challenging time.⁣

Webinar presenters Barbara Dossey, PhD, RN, and Deva-Marie Beck, PhD, RN are Co-Directors of the Nightingale Initiative for Global Health International and Nightingale scholars.⁣
