Since 1929, the Florence Nightingale Foundation has been committed to advancing the study of nursing and midwifery practice, promoting excellence and preparing nurses and midwives to follow in the footsteps of its namesake, to provide the best possible care to patients across the UK.
All costs are funded for you including refreshments and lunches for the cohort days, overnight accommodation, refreshments and dinner for the residential programme, course fees for RADA and entry to Westminster Abbey.
