The Nightingale Fellowship is the alumni association of those nurses who qualified at the Nightingale Training School at St. Thomas’ Hospital, and/or its successor organisations since 1860.  It is a registered charity which exists to fund further nursing studies and support its members during times of need.  We also arrange an annual meeting, Chapel service and tea party for members every May, and provide two journals each year and Facebook networking.

A quote from The Nightingale Fellowship’s President, Gillian Prager:

“The 12th May holds a special place each year in the heart of every Nightingale Fellowship member, many of whom are still practising nurses and midwives. On the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birthday we are eager to show our support for the Museum at St Thomas’ Hospital, and solidarity with all NHS staff. We are proud of the response by nurses all over the world to COVID-19; Florence’s teaching and example shines through them all.”

During the COVID 19 pandemic the Fellowship is still here to support you in times of need. Wherever you are in the world, we are thinking about you and praying for you. We are so very grateful for all the wonderful healthcare staff working extremely hard to keep us safe and find a cure. 

 Keep safe, stay home and remain positive. We look forward to meeting you at St Thomas’ or local gatherings, once the crisis is over. 


The Nightingale Fellowship encourages all members to support the Florence Nightingale Museum in 2020 – on Wednesday 1st July we launch the Nightingale 200 challenge  – ‘Cutting no corners’.
