Read the Nightingale Comes Home blog

Hosted by University of Nottingham Blogs, we will use it to announce project news and reflect on some of our research activities and findings. See the 'research blogs' below for recent examples. 

We welcome guest blogs on topics related to Nightingale and nursing, health, industrial and cultural history in Derbyshire and the wider East Midlands. If you'd like to write such a post, please get in touch.

We are particularly keen to hear from Citizen Researchers, i.e. non-academics investigating topics relating to NIghtingale. If that sounds like you, tell us!
