Fascinating and surprising drama from the diaries, journals, and letters of Florence Nightingale, Clara Barton, and Dorothea Dix. They were much more than angels of mercy.

Ms. White made early public health nurse leaders ‘come alive’ for a class of senior nursing students and for a group of professional nurses. It is one thing to teach about our nurse leaders and women mentors of the early 20th century–it is quite another thing to have practicing and future nurses ‘experience’ their lives through the art form of drama.

Pippa White presents a lively and rich interpretation of some of the most outstanding women in nursing history. She honors their memory and brings their vision and sacrifice to a realistic and meaningful level of experience for the audience. Each nurse who sees her performance leaves feeling in awe of these forebears and proud to be following in their footsteps.
