This year we celebrate the bicentennial of the birth of Florence Nightingale, founder of modern nursing and the first nursing college. Today, the legacy of Florence Nightingale continues, with people all over the world opening their doors and windows to show appreciation for our healthcare workers on the front lines.
...together, we can do more...
Motivated philanthropists, leading media organizations and celebrities from around the world are joining forces to honor our Nurse Heroes through an exciting international art contest and a series of digitally broadcast concerts. The initiative will also provide funds for programs including scholarships for nurses and their children.
This includes a generous gift from the 'Women Who Dared' art collection, the largest collection of work exclusively by women artists in private hands. Exhibited to the public for the first time, the collection includes over 330 pieces of art, spanning 2,500 years, from all 7 continents around the world.
