MONASTIC AND NURSE, 1911Sister Henrietta Stockdale, (9 July 1847 – 6 October 1911) was a British nursing pioneer and Anglican religious sister. She moved to South Africa in 1874 and spent the rest of her life there. She founded the first training school for nurses in South Africa and, through her influence and pressure the first state registration of nurses and midwives in the world was brought about when the Cape of Good Hope Medical and Pharmacy Act of 1891 passed into law.
