Ethel Dickinson memorial

Ethel Gertrude Dickinson.jpgChances are you've never heard of Ethel Dickinson, even though there's a huge monument to her memory in St. John's.

She was a volunteer nurse during the first world war, and during the Spanish Flu outbreak.

And she paid a high price.

The Association of Registered Nurses of Nfld and Lab is holding a wreath-laying ceremony at the monument this afternoon to mark National Nursing Week.

Beverly White is the President of the association.
