The “Nightingale Nursing Fund” is a newly established fund in the Orlando Health Foundation, dedicated to providing financial resources needed to advance the nursing practice, education, and research at Orlando Health.
The fund is named in honor of Florence Nightingale, a British nurse who is widely regarded as the founder of modern nursing. Nightingale worked tirelessly throughout the mid-to-late 1800’s to improve health care and prevent disease. In 1860, her nursing school helped lay the foundation for the profession of nursing.
Gifts to the Nightingale Nursing Fund will help support a variety of needs in the field of nursing at Orlando Health, including professional development through lectures and conferences, nursing research studies and innovative practice models.
