Commenting on the launch Head of School Professor Fitzsimons said "We are delighted to host this important Nursing & Midwifery exhibition here in Queen's. Designed to commemorate the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale, the exhibition includes wonderful archives, that chart not only the fascinating details of Florence's life but also the history of our profession in Northern Ireland. We are grateful to Professor Martin Bradley for his leadership in developing the exhibition and deeply honoured that the Lord Lieutenant Dame Fionnuala Jay-O'Boyle participated in its launch. I would encourage all our healthcare students and members of the public to visit the exhibition and enjoy learning more about the history of Nursing & Midwifery".
