On this day, in 1820, Florence Nightingale was born. This English woman would be known around the globe as a social reformer, statistician and founder of modern nursing. The ‘lady with the lamp’.

Nurses are the principal providers of primary health care in most nations of the world and without them, the health of communities everywhere would be severely compromised.

CFAA would like to take this opportunity to thank all the hard working, dedicated nurses that fulfil training roles with us. You have been a major contributing factor to CFAA’s success.

Florence’s legacy continues in the work of the Florence Nightingale International Foundation, in the advancement of nursing education, research and services for the public good.
