Mission statement

The mission of the Florence Nightingale Institute is to develop the history of nursing as an academic discipline and to use it both to add depth to the profession’s remit and to strengthen professional pride.

The FNI collaborates closely with universities and colleges to develop the history of nursing as a discipline, both in research and in nurses’ training.

The Dutch Centre draws attention to the history of nursing for the benefit of a broad target group, including active and retired nurses as well as carers, students, and the public at large.
