The nursing workforce is diverse, with healthcare workers representing a huge variety of backgrounds and experiences.

This exhibition celebrates the contributions of some of the people whose work and lives have too often been overlooked.

Here we highlight just a few of these disparate stories from the RCN collections, including the role of lesbian nurses in the First World War, the contributions of Black and Minority Ethnic nurses throughout the mid twentieth century, and the ways in which deaf mental health nurses have improved services for deaf patients at pioneering hospitals around England in the last few decades.
