The Nightingale Fellowship is a registered charity for the sole benefit of its members. The membership comprises nurses and midwives who studied at the Nightingale Training School at St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, founded by Florence Nightingale in 1860. Other members comprise graduates from the successor training schools. Members in need can apply for support from the substantial Benevolent Fund. Members also enjoy fellowship with former colleagues at organised events in London, across the UK and worldwide.
