About Florence Nightingale
Florence Nightingale is best known as one of the founders of the modern nursing profession.
Florence was able to persuade the British government to provide a more hygienic hospital for the soldiers in the Crimean War. She was given the nickname “Lady with the Lamp” due to the weary soldiers depictions of the caring nurse whose name they didn’t know.
Florence was a gifted mathematician as well as writer. She would often present statistical data to backup her claims that unsanitary conditions led to more fatalities than being on the actual battlefield. She is arguably the most famous nurse in history.
Florence never married or had children. The Red Cross gives out the Florence Nightingale Award to those who contribute excellence in the field of nursing. The Anglican church celebrates Florence on her own Feast Day.
