Louisa Jordan was a Scottish Nurse who was born in Glasgow. She helped to look after soldiers during World War 1. Conditions would have been very harsh and not like modern day hospitals. There is a new temporary hospital in Scotland and the NHS have chosen to name it after Louisa Jordan in tribute to her courageous service in Serbia.
If you would like to complete a task to mark international nurses day, have a think to yourself or a discussion with your family about all the different skills and personality traits you might need to be a nurse. It must be a tricky job. Can you make a mind map of all the different things that you can think of? You could share it with a nurse to show how admirable they are.
