  • Registered Nurses’ Union Pays Tribute to Ethel Dickinson

    A woman who gave everything nursing those under her care a century ago was remembered today at the Registered Nurses’ Union convention.

    A teacher by trade, Ethel Dickinson volunteer to nurse patients suffering from the Spanish Flu in 1918 during the influenza pandemic that killed up to 100-million people worldwide.

    Dickinson treated those suffering until she contracted the flu herself from her work, and died shortly after.

    Today RNU President Debbie Forward laid a wreath at the memorial to Dickinson at Cavandish Square in St. John’s. Forward says that her story speaks to Registered Nurses today.
