Florence Nightingale Role cards You are the owner of a Victorian hospital. You feel angry that Florence Nightingale visited a hospital in secret and exposed the fact that nurses were sometimes drunk and that conditions in the hospital were awful You are a respectable middle-class, Victorian father you are disgusted that Florence has turned away from being a good wife and mother to become a nurse. You think Florence is doing a good thing for Britain. By helping the country’s soldiers get better, she is actively helping them win the war against Russia! You are one of the doctors in a field hospital in Crimea. You really resented the fact that Florence came along and told you to clean up your hospital You were a washerwoman in the Crimean War, Florence’s insistence on boiling sheets clean all the time added to your work load! You were a nurse in the Crimea, you didn’t agree with Florence’s insistence on having privacy for amputations. You are a senior officer in the army. You don’t think the country should be spending so much on hospital food when soldiers desperately need weapons and uniforms You work in a medical school, you are deeply suspicious of Florence’s training school for nurses. The women will want to become doctors before you know it! You are an architect. You have designed many public buildings, libraries, schools, railway stations… the lot. How dare Florence Nightingale tell you how to design a hospital!
