Week to commemorate nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale

Sudbury Mayor Marianne Matichuk will officially proclaim the week of May 12-16 Nursing Week in Greater Sudbury.

Nursing week begins on today, May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, who is recognized as one of the early pioneers of nursing in the western world.

Nightingale worked as a nurse during the Crimean War in the 1850s, and later started her nursing school at St. Thomas's Hospital in London.

It was the first secular nursing school in the world.
