All the profits will assist in keeping the struggling museum open

A reusable face mask featuring key nursing figures has been launched to help save the Florence Nightingale Museum in its bicentenary year.

The £9.00 mask, made from cotton, features adjustable ear loops and must be washed after every use.

It features a cartoon drawing of Florence Nightingale and other nurses who represent the profession over the past 200 years.

Face mask will promote nursing while raising vital funds

The museum’s assistant director, Kristin Bühnemann, told Nursing Standard that the face mask was an ideal way to promote nursing as masks become a part of everyday life.

‘The mask features Florence and four other nurses, including the first male nurse, Leslie Graham, the first black nurse in the NHS, Kofoworola Abeni Pratt, all the way up to now, with the nurse in scrubs,’ she said.

‘100% of the profits from the mask will go to the museum to help us stay open.’

The museum is struggling for survival having been deprived of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  

It is due to reopen to the public on 1 August.
