Florence Nightingale at the Ed Kinney Speaker Series


Florence Nightingale Performs

Friends, Miss Nightingale delighted nearly 500 attendees in Pleasanton as part of the Ed Kinney speaker series presented by the Museum on Main during National Women’s History Month. Afterwards, attendees were treated to a book signing.

What fun to highlight the icon of the nursing profession. So many members of the public were surprised to learn about her many other talents, including her love of music, math, and languages, not to mention her sense of humor!

What did you learn about this incredible woman that surprised you?

Celebrating Positively Positive Deviants

Celebrating Positively Positive Deviants

“Were there none who were discontented with what they have, the world would never reach anything better.” –Florence Nightingale

March is National Women’s History month. The media is replete with stories of notable women in athletics, art, business, and politics who have garnered fame and laudable accomplishments.

As such, it seems incredulous for us to forget to celebrate the lives of the women who pioneered institutional and/or cultural change when the climate for women to change anything but diapers was customary.

One notable change agent was the positively positive deviant, Florence Nightingale!

Born into a […]

Another Inconvenient Truth

Another Inconvenient Truth

It’s “Women’s History Month;” shall we now celebrate infanticide?

Sharing this post, with permission, which comes from my friend and former colleague, who is a NICU nurse and mom of a Down syndrome child:

“I’m late to the party posting about this opinion piece in the Washington Post from last week. Other people have called the author “courageous” for publicly proclaiming that she’d have aborted a baby with Down syndrome. I truly can’t think of a less courageous decision than aborting a baby with Down syndrome.

This is not a pro-life or pro-choice issue. This […]
