Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale (1820-1910)

FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE (1820-1910) was born into a wealthy English family. She became appalled by the poor nursing conditions in England and decided to devote her life to the reform of nursing. In 1854, Miss Nightingale and a staff of 38 nurses took charge of a huge unsanitary barrack hospital at Scutari. The care she was able to give to the sick and wounded soldiers of the Crimean War made her a national heroine, and she was able to accomplish many of her goals.
