In honour of National Nursing Week (May 8th-14th), learn about the history of the Nursing Sisters in Canada. Battle nursing, a concept begun by Florence Nightingale, found its way to Canada in 1885.
“This tribute to Canadian Nursing Sisters tells of these brave and dedicated women. Their story is one of humour as well as anguish. It is a story of unyielding women who braved all the hardships of war to do their duty and serve their patients, and of those who nursed the casualties left in the wake of war.”
