Join us in celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birthday of Florence Nightingale! Nightingale: A Musical Regarding the Life & Passionate Nature of Miss Florence Nightingale by Pamela Gerke is an inspirational musical dramatization of the life and passion of one of the principle founders of the nursing profession, an amazing woman and a powerful role model for today’s nurses.
Nightingale brings Florence Nightingale’s story to life through original music and scenes in a 2-act musical the reframes and makes relevant her image for modern audiences. She was a remarkable women: strong, charismatic, deeply intelligent, a woman who spoke truth to power and who defined the status quo to follow her heart, thereby effecting significant change in healthcare and society. This musical reveals issues that continue to challenge modern nurses, she as hierarchy, sexism, and bureaucratic obstacles that limit nurses’ mission to heal and tend.
Here’s what some people had to say after seeing Nightingale:
“It was like watching ‘Hamilton’ about Florence Nightingale”
“I had the privilege of seeing a deeply engaging, beautifully acted and inspiring performance. It is extremely instructive for our students and the young professionals today about the role of power dynamics that serve as gatekeeper in how nurses can make a difference in the health and lives of individuals, families, and communities.”
