Born on May 12, 1820, Florence Nightingale became the founder of the modern nursing profession. Against all odds, and with a determination uncharacteristic of women in the 1800s, Nightingale won the right to serve. She was the first female superintendent of nurses in the British army and led a team of 38 nurses into the horrible circumstances of the Crimean War. She later established a training program for nurses at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London. Join master storyteller and award winning actor Megan Wells as she brings to life this famous historical figure in an interactive ZOOM performance with a Q&A.
