Sister Nurses

The Sisters of Mercy across the globe had established themselves in the healthcare field since their beginnings in Dublin, Ireland. When World War I broke out, the Sisters’ skills in their hospital work was much needed as the battles took their toll.

In Great Britain, the Sisters of Mercy served wounded soldiers in their hospital in London; and in the United States the Sisters of Mercy sent over trained nurses to France, served in military camps, and offered up their medical facilities.
