South African nursing history made it into the Grade 5 curriculum: a short history of Cecilia Makiwane.

Baker, P; de Vos, J; Edwards,M & Swanepoel,G. 2012. Cape Town, Platinum English first additional language reader. Maskew Miller Longman page 39.

Unfortunately it contains an error: Cecilia Makiwane was born on 30 November 1879 and died on the 2nd of February 1919 ( ) - at 39 years of age. The statement that she nursed for 50 years is therefore inaccurate.
