This exhibition explores how the emotions attached to nursing, and the assumptions underlying these feelings, have changed throughout history. During the last 150 years, nursing has been shaped by ideas about class, race and gender, as well as shifts in practice and politics. See Florence Nightingale’s bible, Edith Cavell’s last letter and letters and scrapbooks from conflict zones. The exhibition includes a new stained-glass window by artist Rachel Mulligan, in collaboration with nurses from around the UK, showing care at every stage of life.
