    Hi there,
    I'm really stuck on choosing a topic for my history coursework. We can do it on anything. I'm interested in doing midwifery at uni so would something linked to that or nursing be useful? I'm also interested in Florence Nightingale but I can't find anything useful for her. Anyone got any helpful ideas?
    Thanks!

    I think something linked to nursing would be really interesting. Maybe something about nurses in WW1 might be interesting too?

    Florence is quite big actually. I had to study her when I studied the Crimean War at AS History.

    Why not do something to do with medicine at the front line in a major war such as Crimean War or WW1? Look at how useful medics were in managing wounded soldiers or how the innovations of medicine advancement during the late 19th century influenced the outcome of the Crimean War or WW1. You could look at the physical treatments or the psychological treatments of men (the latter goes great with WW1).

    You could possibly look at birthing ideas or what midwives used to do in Early Modern England or the implications of giving birth during the Victorian era? I.e when diseases were most prevalent, lack of space in hospitals, women and children dying more, etc?

    Make sure you have a lot of sources for your coursework.

    Good luck!
